Micro-Artistry refined

Are you into miniatures? No, I mean into REALLY miniature miniatures? If you are, you’re in luck, Russian artist Anatoly Konenko is making a big name for himself in the art world in Europe. He sculpts normal-looking everyday objects, except they are so small you can only see them under a microscope. According to the story, some of his biggest fans include  Kim Jong-il and Vladimir Putin.

Matthew Stock from Reuters has the video story.

*Spoiler Alert*: Koneko has now moved onto mini bottles of champagne, with real alcohol. I wonder what type of champagne he uses? Probably one from a small vineyard.
