One hundred thousand toothpicks and 34 years of work! It was worth it.
I don’t know where these artists get the time, the patience, or the talent but if I had a quarter of what they have… oh, the things I would think about doing.
Artist Chris Gilmour turns trash into treasure.
In what must be an incredible show of patience and preciseness, there are people in this weird world we all share that make a practice of balancing seemingly implacable rocks on top of each other. The result is surreal and quiet beautiful… if for nothing more than its apparent impossibility.
The oddest things get immortalized sometimes. You may or may not agree that these statues are art, but they are all weird enough to be considered genuine Curiosities!

Arboursculpture is the fine art of manipulating young saplings into a variety of shapes. Once the saplings become trees, the shape is maintained. This is a very long and arduous process and few people in the world are masters of this art.

These are actual works of art created with the dust that settled on old cars.
