Sculptures on TOP of a pencil TIP

Look at the pencil tip sculptures!!

"...Brazilian born, Connecticut based, Dalton Ghetti carefully crafts the tips of pencils into amazing micro sculptures. These miniature masterpieces are a side project for the professional carpenter, who has been perfecting this art for the last 25 years. Dalton uses a razor blade, sewing needle, a sculpting knife, a steady hand and lots of patience to meticulously carve the graphite which can take anywhere between a few months to a few years..."

Now that's cool. Man; what patience this dude has to have (and steady hand skill). Thanks for sharing.

Wow, I bet when Dalton was growing up people kept telling him to "get the lead out" and he is still doing it. It reminds me of a poster I saw in the cubicle of an IC designer. It was a picture of God looking down on the planet earth and the caption said " One day I think I'll put it all on one chip.
Best Regards, Murray

I saw it, but I do not believe it. I couldn't thread a needle even when I was young, let alone create artwork inside the opening... Hope his teachers have seen the news about his success.

Hopefully his teachers went to see his work that was on exhibit here for a while and they too felt small,
