Art is where you find it

The guy who made these lipstick sculptures of Brad and Angelina has an unusual sculpting technique. To make the super-miniature sculptures he has developed a way to slow his heart beat to avoid accidentally lopping off a head or losing an arm. Willard Wigan apparently took 50 hours to make the pair which measure 9 x 4mm. You can see more of his micro sculpting here, family groups in the eye of a needle - that sort of thing.
