Artist Creates Miniature Sculptures Small Enough To Fit In The Eye Of A Needle

Willard Wigan always thought small. When he was just five years old, he built tiny houses for ants. Decades later, he began crafting tiny artistic masterpieces so small, they literally fit in the eye of a needle. It's called microscopic art. Each sculpture takes about eight weeks and the process involves Wigan slowing down his heart rate and breathing so as to not make any sudden movements as he works. They are so tiny, Wigan paints them using the hair from a dead housefly.
