A daring, candlestick, ancient Egypt style : Sphinx with a fish tail put on a blue turtle. (almost) Egyptian.. hibis

What a candlestick ! A snake on a human foot put on a frog. (Ariège museum, France). hibis

Free your Imagination ; this bird, which resembles a hen, appears well ridiculous, with its trimmings of shells.

the Sixties ?  A little more : Mexico museum, Maya Period !!   hibis

American phantasm on Egypt. A marvellous object presented on a lightning background. A bit to much ?

The Year of the Cow? It's possible here, in the Massif Central (France !).   hibis

  Uninhibited clock: I'm having fun..  hibis
Porcelain Museum, Limoges (France).

A human sized character made of dishes, vases, coffee pots.. (hat, arms, wrists, legs..


Small ?  an electric motor powered and running, it is common. When it passes in the eye of a needle , it is already less (record of a Russian there is already a long time)

Gold and diamonds .. for a contact lens. Yes, and of course, it is usable despite its 5 grams gold circle with incrustation of 18 tiny diamonds. India, work done and sold to the benefit of the needy. Luxury in this case, we love it. "the Figaro"
 : Small ? he paints with a head fly's hair !
His best is an invisible sculpture , a business man ordered : he crushed a grain of sand, took a micro particule left with what he sculpted a white bear !
Sculptures of William Wigan can cost up to $140,000. A price so high for a so tiny size never reached for a piece in terms of art. Le Courrier  International dec. 2009.

Dyslexic (difficulty of language and nothing else), he took refuge in his art by first dressing ants with hats and shoes....

In the eye of a needle.. Amstrong saluting after the American flag is planted on the moon.
