Miniature artist sews he's no flash in the panda.

Byline: FIONA CASSIDY

YOU could have heard a pin drop yesterday as artist Chen Frong-shean showed off his latest work.

The celebrated Taiwanese miniature sculptor presented his Six Pandas In The Eye Of A Needle, which took him four painstaking months to complete, before a thrilled crowd in Taipei.

The 0.7mm pandas carved from resin are the latest tiny designs by Chen, who celebrated the Chinese year of the Sheep last month by carving two ewe heads from a pair of bamboo chopsticks.

His previous work includes a carved ant the size of a pencil tip and he painted the smallest book in the world at just 15mm long and 9mm wide.

Now that really would be a sight for sore eyes.
