Needle-eye art made visible through KRÜSS microscope

Last week, we were addressed with an unusual “cry for help”:
the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg (museum for art and craft Hamburg) was preparing an exhibition with micro-artist Willard Wigan.
 
They urgently needed a microscope through which visitors would be able to admire the small worlds in eyes of needles or on pinheads. Of course we were happy to help out with our stereo-zoom microscope MSZ5000 with camera to make the fascinating sculptures sized less than 0.005 millimeter of height observable.
