Toothpick City

Scott Weaver has spent the past 35-years painstakingly recreating San Francisco using 100,000 wooden toothpicks. Called "Rolling Through the Bay," it's also an interactive, kinetic sculpture that uses ping pong balls rolling along winding tracks within the piece to highlight neighborhoods, historical locations, and landmarks. Wonder where he got all those toothpicks? Weaver says: "I have used different brands of toothpicks depending on what I am building. I also have many friends and family members that collect toothpicks in their travels for me. For example, some of the trees in Golden Gate Park are made from toothpicks from Kenya, Morocco, Spain, West Germany and Italy. The heart inside the Palace of Fine Arts is made out of toothpicks people threw at our wedding." Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.
