Even if you have an undying love for crafts and a hefty appreciation for the Lord of the Rings series, we guarantee that you don't love them as much as Pat Acton of Matchstick Marvels does.
Many of Acton's pieces can be found in Ripley's Believe It Or Not. In fact, that company has purchased a good deal of his work. Minas Tirith itself resides in the Matchstick Marvels Museum in Gladbrook, Iowa. Besides the 420,000 matchsticks, it's also supported by 24,000 wooden blocks that make up the mountain from which the city emerges.
