Dubbed the 'greatest micro sculptor on Earth', Willard Wigan MBE has teamed up with the 'world's finest living art forger', John Myatt for the unique work of art.

'Mona Lisa: Secret in the Eye' is now available to purchase through luxury website veryfirstto.com at £1 million.

The site states: "The microscopic rendering of the portrait measures under 1mm squared. One can just about detect, with the naked eye, that Mona Lisa's right pupil has something within it."

Adding: "Wigan, who has to go into a trance-like meditative state to slow down his nervous system so he can work between heartbeats, has somehow managed to capture the protagonist's distinctive features on the most miniscule of canvases."
