Famous landmarks made out of 6 million toothpicks

Leave a Comment

It took Stan Munro, of North Syracuse, 6 years and more than six million toothpicks and 170 liters of glue to create his Toothpick City – a collection of famous buildings and landmarks all around the world. His amazing Toothpick City contains landmarks like Sydney's Opera House, the Taj Mahal and the Big Ben built to a scale of 1:164. Stan's buildings are largely hollow, with just a few structural supports - also made from the toothpicks he buys direct from a wholesaler.
