This is artwork created by Willard Wigan. Willard is a micro-sculptor. His work is truly astonishing when you consider how painstaking it must be creating these. He was on The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien last night, and mentioned that when making a scene from Alice in Wonderland, he accidentally inhaled Alice! His website mentions the extent Willard goes to when creating these sculptures:

Willard enters a meditative state in which his heartbeat is slowed, allowing him to reduce hand tremors and sculpt between pulse beats. Even the reverberation caused by traffic outside can affect Willard’s work. He often works through the night when there is minimal disruption.

Truly awe-inspiring stuff. Hit the jump for a few more shots of his micro-sculptures, or check out his website here
