Patience, 100,000 toothpicks, and 35 years
All recreated with a little glue, some toothpicks, and an incredible amount of ingenuity. Weaver estimates he’s spent over 3,000 hours on this project, and the toothpicks have been sourced from around the world. He started building toothpick sculptures in 1968 when he was 8 years old and early structures were abstract and about 2 – 4 feet tall. In 1974 he started a new sculpture, he then added the Golden Gate Bridge and Lombard Street to it, this is what started what is now Rolling Through the Bay.
This artist has great patience and incredible attention to detail.
