Sculptures can come in all shapes and sizes, but these ones  are really, really small. London-based artist Jonty Hurwitz created a collection of very tiny sculptures that can’t ordinarily be seen with the naked eye. His works are 80 by 100 by 20 microns and cannot detected except on the screen of an extremely powerful scanning electron microscope. Huff’ Post reports:

In the photo above, Hurwitz has placed his nano sculptures on various objects, one being a human hair. The point of this, he told The Huffington Post, is to demonstrate just how small they really are.

“The challenge is that these works exist beyond the limits of our perceptual capabilities, and as a consequence beyond the realms of what we can visualize,” Hurwitz said. “The thickness of a single hair is something that every person has pondered at some point in their childhood.”

In one image, he even shows the sculpture compared to a human sperm.

He said the sculptures, which were created with new 3D printing technology, are being reviewed by the Guinness Book of World Records. They may be the smallest creations of the human form or the smallest human portraits ever created.

Hurwitz got an engineering degree in Johannesburg, South Africa, where he “discovered the fine line between art and science.” All of his pieces take physics into account and use over 1 billion calculations and algorithms.
