Here’s Minas Tirith, Made Out of Toothpicks

Again, another example of fandom at a whole new level. Lord of the Rings fans are incredible.

In the photo to the left, you see what Minas Tirith (the capital of Gondor) looked like in the Lord of the Rings films.

Impressive.

In the photo below you’ll see a replica of Minas Tirith, created entirely with toothpicks.

Toothpicks.

Can you imagine how long this took?

Who sits down and creates anything out of toothpicks? LOTR fans…that’s who.

I’m not making fun. I’m really not. I’m just trying to wrap my head around this level of fandom. I love these books but I’d be hard pressed to make a Minas Tirith out of legos, with specific instructions, much less out of toothpicks.

Toothpicks.

I’m speechless.

  8. That is magnificent. Not just because of the level of fandom but the level of artistry that it would have taken is amazing.

  10. What’s more impressive? the amount of free time used or the shear construction

  12. Is it fandom though? or just the desire to create something beautiful, which it certainly is. It must have taken a huge amount of time and patience and that’s a beauty in itself.

    Most impressive.
