>there is or was a display at the Mariner's Museum in Norfolk, VA of miniature ships models. The artist who made them (I'm embarrassed to admit I can not recall the name) practiced his carving skills by carving a complete set of busts of Presidents of the US in grains of rice. They had them there with a powerful magnifying glass that would slide back and forth and let you look at them. You could actually recognize them. So go ahead, turn a goblet out of rice.
