Looking Through the Eye of a Needle
This incredibly amazing artwork is made to fit in the eye of a needle. In the photo just above allows you to see how small the sculptures really are. You can see the artist Willard Wigan holding the needle for scale. It truly is something to be impressed by; making art that small and that detailed would require a lot of patience, artistic vision and a butt load of talent. Wigan first started making tiny sculptures when he was bunking off of school, he made an apartment for the ants to live in, enticing them in with sugar. You can learn more about his story and how he makes these fastinating figures by watching his Ted talk here, or for more of Wigan’s sculptures check out his site.
