    Saw a documentary last night about the incredible Willard Wigan
    I was mesmerised as I watched him sculpt 'miniature' objects
    He is famous for these sculptures inside the eye of a needle - here's some ………..

    It is ! And he is so amazing too
    How he has the patience is astounding as the work is so intricate
    Last night he took a carpet fiber and carved a 'baby' image from it, then - put the baby into a stubble of hair from his head !!!

    No I never seen or heard of him. I can barley find a needle on a clear day sober...I can not imagine how a person does such a thing. .I will look him up.

    Similar yes - quality of imagination makes this man exceptional
    He took a carpet fiber and carved an embryo from it, then, from a piece of shaved stubble he hollowed that to insert
    the baby inside - he is truly remarkable

    Thinking more on your question, its a mixed answer
    Yes, happy to be appreciated but the work is 'so' intense and time consuming, it must impact on his quality of life
