Salavat Fidai’s micro miniatures are small but mighty, attracting global attention for their precision and unbelievably tiny scale. The Russian sculptor fashions mini-masterpieces into the points of graphite pencils. The resulting pieces depict a wide variety of subjects, but no matter teacup, book, or bald eagle, they all share Fidai’s trademark astounding scale. The self-taught sculptor, who suggests using a bell jar or shadowbox frame for display, enlists a microscope for the smallest details, sometimes working days on a single piece. “The technology is very simple,” he said. “I take a pencil and remove the extra.”
