Matchstick Minas Tirith

J.R.R. Tolkien's City of Kings, Minas Tirith, built by Patrick Acton out of matchsticks.

I'm gonna come clean: I'm obsessed with Tolkien's world, but not in my wildest daydreams would I ever presume to try and reproduce anything The Master created. This work by Acton, this pile of matchsticks, absolutely works for me. So congratulations Peter Jackson and Patrick Acton, you succeed where all others fail. Minas Tirith is set to be completed sometime in 2010.

Below, check one of Acton's other creations: Hogwart's!
