Toothpick Masterpiece

As someone who "hearts" art but hasn't really studied it in depth I often find myself drawn to folk artists--people who aren't formally trained but feel a need to create nevertheless.

Scott Weaver
is 3rd generation San Franciscan who has built sculptures out of toothpicks since he was 8. He's spent over 3,000 hours creating his masterpiece, Rolling Through The Bay, a 100,000 toothpick sculpture of San Francisco complete with functioning streets through which ping pong balls can roll. It is amazing.
