An artist created the world's smallest sculpture...only for it to be crushed.
Jonty Hurwitz creates sculptures so small they can sit on a human hair or on the head of an ant but 'freaked out'
when he discovered a number of them had been squashed during a photoshoot.
The 45-year-old's tiny figurines are less than a tenth of a millimetre tall and are created through a process called nano-printing.
His works have included a naked woman, a couple - one of them winged - in an embrace and a group of female mannequins.
