Slide 1: Sculptures in the Eye of a Needle Slide 2: Tokesplace.com applauds Parish Gallery’s* exhibition of the smallest sculptures on the planet by renown micro sculptor Willard Wigan. *Georgetown at 1504 31 ST. NW Washington DC Slide 3: Golden Galleon, a two masted cutty rigged schooner sitting on the head of a diamond is typical of the dimensions of his micro sculptures. Slide 4: Mr. Wigan "At times, when I'm working on a piece, I might come to believe that I myself am microscopic. That's how involved in my work I become. My tiny world becomes everything to me.” Slide 5: His sculptures are undetectable to the eye yet, when viewed through high power magnification, a viewer is truly mesmerized. Slide 6: Mr. Wigans sculpts while in a kind of meditative state and between heartbeats to avoid hand tremors. Slide 7: His tools are unique, comprising for example: a shard of diamond drilled into the head of a pin and a single eyelash or a hair from a fly. Slide 8: He sculpts iconic figures like the Statue of Liberty, Elvis, the Titanic, Henry VIII and Lloyds of London’s Headquarters. Slide 9: Examples of his mesmerizing micro sculptures in the Parish Show are presented below. Slide 10: Nine Camels Slide 11: The Obama Family Slide 12: Beauty and the Beast Slide 13: Majelia Jackson Slide 14: Harry Potter Slide 15: Christmas Tree Slide 16: This show is a must see! The combination of the sculptor’s extremely high technical skill and original sculpting techniques result in sculptures that must be seen in person to be fully appreciated. Slide 17: His sculptures appear at Parish after successful exhibits in Europe, Los Angeles CA, Chicago IL, Houston TX, and an appearance by Mr. Wigans on The Tonight Show. Slide 18: Tokesplace .com invites comments on the Wigan’s micro sculptures. Slide 19: The End
