Astonishing Microminiatures, Sculptures Passing Through a Needle Eye
Micro designs by Nikolai Aldunin amaze and delight. The sculptor calls himself a master of miniatures. He was born in 1956 and worked as a locksmith and a turner. Carried away by his love for micro sculpturing, he quit his job later in life. Here are some of his artworks that are fascinating and unbelievably realistic.
A bike riding on a sewing needle, and an assault rifle, consisting of 34 tiny parts, sculptured on a match. A caravan of tiny camels is so small that it can pass through a needle eye. And a military tank T-34 placed on an apple seed. The sculpture includes 257 realistic parts that magically create a stunning micro design. The artist creates a portrait of Leo Tolstoy on a rice grain. Another fabulous microminiature is a sculptured Ostankino Tower on an apple seed.

The first micro-watercolor paintings and inscriptions on grains were known in ancient Greece. The Japanese artist Hokusai Katsushika (1760-1849), the author of the world-famous One Hundred Views of Fuji, was also fond of micro-miniature designs. Once, demonstrating his skill, he was running around the square with a bucket and making brush strokes on the go. In a few minutes, he painted an image of a deity 200 square meters in length on the ground of the city square. The drawing could be seen only from the roof of a nearby temple. And then he drew a couple of sparrows on a grain of corn. The picture was so small that it could only be seen through a magnifying glass.

Aldunin saddled a flea and then admitted that catching an insect is much more complicated than shoeing it. Here she is, savvy, with a saddle and a bridle. This artwork is astonishing.
