Can you imagine how steady your hand must be to create one of these miniature masterpieces? One breath could literally destroy an entire collection. Coined the master of miniatures, Russian artist Nikolai Aldunin works between the beats of his heart, in order to keep his hands perfectly still. Using superglue, syringes and toothpicks, he creates works of art so tiny, a microscope is needed to see them.
His work includes a T-34 tank a fraction of the size of an apple seed and composed of more than 200 pieces, made of pure gold and described as “perfect copy of a real vehicle”; a gold saddle and horse shoes for a flea; and a camel train in the eye of a needle. He has motivated the creation of a museum for miniatures in Moscow.
