Willard Wigan micro-sculptures. Talented British artist Willard Wigan began his artistic life in his childhood. “It began when I was five years old,” says Willard. “I started making houses for ants because I thought they needed somewhere to live. Then I made them shoes and hats. It was a fantasy world I escaped to. That’s how my career as a micro-sculptor began.” Willard’s micro-sculptures are now so tiny that they are only visible through a microscope. Each piece commonly sits within the eye of a needle, or on a pin head. Willard’s artwork has been described by many as “the eighth wonder of the world”.

A sculptor has proven you really can see the world in a grain of sand – after carving this incredible church from one tiny granule stuck in the head of a needle. He created the sculpture of St Bartholomew’s Church in Churchdown, Gloucestershire, after his girlfriend Rachel Slade, 40, bet he couldn’t do it. The ”painstaking” piece of art, which is the size of a full stop in a newspaper, even comes complete with stained-glass windows.

Talented Willard Wigan, 52, created the sculpture of St Bartholomew’s Church in Churchdown, Gloucestershire, after his girlfriend Rachel Slade, 40, bet he couldn’t do it.

It is his latest in a serious of incredible works made from single grains of the beach stuff that are so small they cannot be seen by the naked eye
