Behold this miracle of science!!! The ultimate dream which has haunted humanity for aeons has finally been realized!!
Note: I was being sarcastic!!, though it is a very very small snowman (actually made from tin)

at 0.01 millimetres across it is only a fifth the width of a typical strand of human hair.
It is made from two tin beads, which are normally used to calibrate electron microscopes, welded together with platinum.
A focused beam of platinum ions was used to deposit metal and create the figure's nose.
An ion beam was also used to gouge out the eyes and mouth
