English artist Willard Wigan is pretty amazing. Working with rice, or grains of sand, and a surgical blade, he makes the world's smallest scultures. This is his Statue of Liberty in the eye of a needle.

Persnickety fact-checkers may insist there are a few smaller sculptures, but I should remind them those have been made with lazers. Wigan works by hand. In 2001, Japanese scientists made a tiny sculpture of a bull that measured 10 micrometers by seven (a micrometer is one-thousandth of a millimeter). We say "Bull!" Wigan is the man!
