World’s Tiniest Masterpiece


The documentary, Worlds Tiniest Masterpieces, follows micro-sculptor Willard Wigan whose art is so small it can fit in the eye of a needle. His entire collection–valued in the millions–could fit on a coin. For Willard, the desire to go smaller and smaller is his eccentric escape from a chaotic world. But how does he do it and why?

Willard’s artwork is so tiny you need a microscope to see it. It is so fragile he once inhaled three weeks of work when he breathed in at the wrong time.

In an attempt to beat his own world record, we follow Willard as he creates his tiniest piece of art to date. A piece so small it is invisible to the naked eye. Using cutting edge macro camera technology and CGI we follow Willard into his miniature world.
