It really is the eye of a needle. British artist WILLARD WIGAN makes these microsculptures aided by a microscope, which are invisible to the naked eye and take months to create…by hand. They don’t go into his exact technique. He started as a child creating houses for ants and then made them hats and shoes. He has dyslexia (he can’t read or write) and said it was a way to escape. Last year he sold 72 pieces to gym millionaire David Lloyd for £11.2million. He’s on tour in the US and will be in Los Angeles, Chicago and Houston.

It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.
