3 Years And 420,000 Matchsticks – This Is What It Took To Build J.R.R. Tolkien’s The City of Kings

Iowa-based artist Pat Acton spent 3 years building a colossal model of Minas Tirith, the capital of Gondor in J.R.R. Tolkien’s fictional Middle-Earth world. All he used was 420,000 carefully-placed matchsticks and gallons of glue. An additional 24,000 small wooden blocks were used to build up Mount Mindoullin, the supportive structure behind the whole sculpture.
