Lloyd’s is regarded as the pre-eminent insurance market, with a massive reputation across the globe.

One renowned micro-sculptor, Willard Wigan, has created a replica of the Lloyd’s building to the exact precision and proportion of the real thing, but sitting on the head of a pin.

The meticulous effort has been praised by Lord Rogers, who designed the iconic structure.

Backchat wonders, however, whether the minuscule piece was commissioned by a bunch of Bermudan insurers looking to do their level best to cut the renowned marketplace down to size.
