The World’s Smallest Thinker
Using lasers, Korean researches have sculpted the smallest work of art ever, here’s the Live Science article with all the details including the mechanical engineering process to create this proof of concept before moving on to more interesting scientific projects.
What the researches did was to replicate Rodin’s ‘The Thinker’, but its only about twice the size of a red blood cell, about 10um in width. Though it’s so tiny the researches still had the fidelity to replicate the muscles seen in The Thinkers back and also see individual toes!
The original masterpiece by Rodin is approximately 6 feet tall, this version is about 93,000 times smaller.
