Amazing microscopic sculptures

The art of Willard Wigan has been known for some time, but we're embarrassed to say that we learned of it only today with this post on Snopes. His talent is so amazing that we still wanted to write about it, even at the risk of "old news" flames.

Wigan specializes in microscopic art that can literally fit on the head of a pin, and often does. His art can't be fully appreciated without the aid of a microscope, but you can view some remarkable close-up photos on his site.
