Sculptures from a single grain of sand.... done in the eye of a needle

Check these out.  They're made by 52 year old Willard Wigan.  He carves them from single grains of sugar or sand.  He then mounts them on small objects, like the head of a pin, or inside the eye of a needle.  Because of their size, they require special display cases, and even those are beautiful.

The Obamas

Peter Pan

The Beatles' Yellow Submarine

Church in England.

These deserve a post of their own.
