Make your own action figure

I know what I’m getting my family for Christmas. 🙂

If you don’t mind holding as still as possible for 30 minutes and paying anywhere from $445 to $2295 (depending on the size of the finished product), you can have your own action figure (or wedding cake topper, or cat toy, etc.)!

Microscopic Sculptures

micro_gold_ship

The ship on the left is a hand-crafted sculpture by Willard Wigan. The thread and needle on the right is for scale comparison.

I echo Darren’s sentiment of: Whoa.

"You have to control the whole nervous system, you have to work between the heartbeat – the pulse of your finger can destroy the work." Wigan uses a tiny surgical blade to carve microscopic figures out of rice, and fragments of grains of sand and sugar, which are then mounted on pinheads. To paint his creations, he uses a hair plucked from a dead fly (the fly has to have died from natural causes, as he refuses to kill them for the sake of his art). His sculptures have included a Santa Claus and a copy of the FIFA World Cup trophy, both about 0.005mm tall, and a boxing ring with Muhammad Ali figure which fits onto the head of a match.”

Nice find, Darren!
