Matchstick Middle Earth

Here is a model of the city of Minas Trith from Lord Of The Rings, built over two years out of matchsticks.

I have not the words. Have you the words? I have not them. Here, here’s Patrick Acton, the guy who put it all together. He hasn’t got many words either. He’s probably a bit tired. I would be. Wow.

420,000 matches, on display at the Matchstick Museum in Gladbrook, Iowa for a year.

Before it is razed to the ground!

So, anyone got a light?
