Well, that's an understatement, Cheley.

Pretty cool. I've seen rice sculptures that are amazingly small but I think these are even smaller.

That is fantastic. He uses a microscope but he must have amazing eyes and very steady hands. :eyes:

If you can inhale your work and not even notice it - that's awfully small. But the detail is amazing.

WOW! He's awesome. I'm so happy for him selling his life's work for $20,000,000.00. He may not read or write, but he's one smart, well-spoken and talented man.
I'm imagining a guy holding a matchbox and saying, "I worked 40 years and all I have to show for it is right here in this little box." :rofl:
Although it never crossed my mind to carve under a microscope I've worked on some watches that required a microscope to adjust.
Instead of consciously moving you just kind of think about moving.
I want to know how you hold a grain of sand to carve on it.
This is the smallest artsy thing I've carved (sitting on a dime).
Anyone want to offer $20 million for it?

That is crazy....but inspiring...
Can't read or write but just made 20 million dollars!

wow, that is amazing!! I remember many years ago I saw something on TV about a man who painted on the head of a pin. I thought that was something, but to actually carve objects and fit them into the eye of a needle? Wow, I don't even know what to say.

I have seen this before he is amazing man. His paint brush is a hair from the back of a fly. Now that is amazing in itself. And the teachers made fun of him. Guess who is laughing now!:thumbsup:

:noway: Wow! Cool work of art that man has created. :eyes:

I don't think it's crazy if it nets him 20 mil; amazing work.

Incredible... I am impressed!! I can't imagine the amount of patience required for that type of work! Good for him :thumbsup:
