World Smallest Chess Set

The UK's Times paper reports on what might possibly be the world's smallest chess set. It measures just 3.5mm x 2.5mm. Russian microminiaturist Vladimir Aniskin created this amazing item and you can also see more of his work via his website.

To get an idea of just how small the chess pieces are, take a look at them standing atop a poppy seed!
