Willard Wigan raconte comment une enfance difficile et solitaire l'a conduit à découvrir son talent unique — créer un art si minuscule qu'on ne peut pas le voir à l'oeil nu. Sa présentation de miniatures telles qu'on les voit sous un microscope ne peut être qualifiée que de stupéfiante.

Willard Wigan sculpts figures small enough to fit on the head of a pin. To create these microscopic masterpieces, he works diligently through the stillest hours of the night, between his own heartbeats. Full bio
