R.V. Dewey notes that the Snopes web site I cited in my earlier piece on the British artist who creates tiny sculptures misspelled the gentleman's name, and I perpetuated the error. It's Willard Wigan, not Wigen. He confirmed this with Wigan's personal assistant. Sorry!
R.V. also forwarded these images. The first is a model of the Titanic on the point of a needle, and the second is of the artist and his patron, David Lloyd. He writes: "The man in the orange shirt is the $20,000,000.00 buyer of Willard.s micro-art." -Editor
