Japanese Clay Artist Creates Really Tiny Animal Sculptures

A Japanese clay artist has been making tiny animal sculptures with some details nearly invisible to the naked eye.

Kakuho Fujii’s sculptures measure somewhere between two and five millimeters (0.2 and 0.5 centimeters), smaller than any finger or toe nail on the human body.

But there are also food and objects such as a tiny bowl of ramen, a Christmas tree, a snowman, and a car.

Clearly, Fujii’s creations require unbelievable dexterity, patience and an eye for the tiniest details.

Fujii showcases everything on Instagram, which shows an evolution from thumb-sized sculptures.
