ABC News has a great video interview with British micro-artist Willard Wigan, who uses a high-powered microscope and claims he has to slow his heart down in order to work between beats, creating the world's smallest sculptures. Wigan uses tiny homemade tools and paints with “a hair plucked from a fly’s back.” Check out works of his such the eye-of-a-needle Wizard of Oz scene (pictured left), dolls the size of a human blood cell and Charlie Chaplin balanced on a human eyelash. Wigan turned to micro art as a young child humiliated at school because of learning disabilities and says that he still can’t read or write. A major collection of his work recently sold for $20 million.

$20 million for something you cannot see without a microscope?

 

Some people have more money than sense.

 

This shit is pretty crazy though.
