American Bob Morehead is passionate about toothpicks. It might seem like an odd passion at first glance, but his work proves that his passion and artistic talent is what allows us to pick him from a crowd. Over 8 years have been poured into his Toothpick City, and an estimated 300,000 toothpicks have sacrificed their original purpose to become part of his impressive piece.
