Highschool toothpick bridges are so 00′s, now it is all about the recreation of world wonders using those wonderful little wooden sticks. Stan Munro has been working for over six years to create “Toothpick City” a comprehensive city consisting of toothpick versions of world landmarks. So far the construction has consumed over six million toothpicks and 170 liters of glue! Stan has building toothpick bridges and toothpick buildings since grade school when his teacher challenged each student to build a toothpick sculpture capable of holding an egg. Stan’s toothpick contraption held his desk!
Each of Stans sculptures surpass even the best design for toothpick bridges, even his toothpick bridges are pure art. I’m a huge fan of alternative art mediums, such as shadows and watermelons, so this toothpick art is right up my alley. I hope you enjoy these sculptures as much as I did!

Here is another look at the Chrystler building next to the toothpick master craftsman Stan Munro! All of his toothpick sculptures are built at 1:164 scale, meaning that many pieces rise well over six feet in hight!
