Minature Art

Saw this on NatGeo. The guys name is Willard Wigan. He makes tiny (camels in the eye of a needle) art. Very impressive. He was using a human eyelash and a fly hair to paint.

I read or saw something on him a while back. The patience and steady hand to do this must put the best surgeons to shame. Amazing stuff. I wonder how many time he has goofed up though?

I believe I heard him saw he has inhaled a few of the pieces. Coughs and sneezes have caused casualties as well.

I saw a segment on him on CBS Sunday Morning awhile back. Incredibly impressive given the scale.
