    And the quiz questions of the day are:

    1. Who built it?

    2. By what material it is made?

    3. How big (or small!) is it really ...?

    A tip: Willard Wiggins is NOT the one you're looking for!


    Cheers

    Not at all like the normal people who build them in plastic at 1/72 and 1/35 scale. :LOL:

    Here are a few more works by Nikolaj Aldunin ...:

    An AK 47 (lying on a match) ...:

    The Moscow TV Tower (again on an apple seed) ...:

    And a Russian Samovar (standing on a sewing needle and barely visible to the naked eye!) ...:

    The absolute hammer, however, is this work: A saddle and horseshoes (made of gold!) for a flea ...:

    Because it's there..?

    This guy IS crazy, but you've gotta admire the skill. I bet he could sculpt the D-Day landings on a penny piece. I'll pack in now before I give him any ideas.
