World's smallest engraving on eye of needle sells for 100K pounds.

London, July 08 ( ANI ): The world's smallest engraving, which is nearly half the size of a red blood cell, has been sold out for 100,000 pounds.

Engraver Graham Short, carved a Bible quote on a miniature fleck of gold in the eye of a needle, the Daily Star reported.

The engraving reads that it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.

Short, who shot to fame with an engraving of the Lord's Prayer on a pinhead, exhibited his piece of art at the Art House Gallery in Kelso, Roxburghshire which sold out in two minutes. ( ANI )
