The mind-blowing engraving is invisible to the naked eye and has been carved on to the point of a NEEDLE.
Graham Short, from Bimingham in the UK, spent four months creating the work - which is smaller than a red blood cell.
The image can only be viewed through a powerful microscope and depicts a Sikh symbol called the Khanda.
Graham said: "I wanted to produce a religious piece which would be the smallest piece of art the world has ever seen.
“The Khanda is the symbol of the Sikhs, as the Cross is to Christians or the Star of David is to the Jews."
To prevent his pulse from causing him to make mistakes, the gifted engraver lowers his heart rate by swallowing potassium, magnesium and beta-blockers.
The extreme intricacy of the work also means he has to scratch away at the needle-point in between heartbeats.
“I can get my heart rate down to about 25 beats a minute. Swimming helps a lot. I swim 10,000 metres a day," Graham said.
"The fitter I am, the lower my resting heart rate."
Every few months the master engraver, who completed the piece earlier this year, has botox injected into the skin around his eyes.
He added: "This keeps my muscles and nerves surrounding my eyes from being a distraction while I'm working, but it wears off after a couple of months or so.”
The ultra-focused 68-year-old has produced a number of notable works in the past.
He preciously engraved ‘Nothing is Impossible’ on the sharp-end of a razorblade, which he sold for nearly £50,000, and has also carved the Lords Prayer on to the head of a pin.
