The age-old debate about how Santa Claus fits down the chimney would be fairly brief if he were only a third the size of a full stop.
But that is roughly the size of the Father Christmas created by Birmingham artist Willard Wigan.

He sculpted the figure out of carbon fibre, gold and nylon, painting it with an eyelash cut into a sixth of its normal width using shards of diamond.

Mr Wigan, 48, mounts his sculptures in the eye of a needle or on pinheads

Yes, uber cool. You've got some diamonds lying about, so what do you do? Use them to cut up a few eyelashes in order to paint a ridiculously small Santa Claus of course.
Can't get any cooler than that!

Aww, I'm sorry, I didn't mean you - I meant Mr Wigan!
Besides, to be honest, I wish I had enough money to use diamonds as cutting tools!
