Minas Tirith aus Streichhölzern

 420,000 Streichhölzer hat Patrick Acton für das ganze gebraucht. Bisher ist es die Detailierteste Arbeit die Minas Tirith zeigt. Das ganze ist in seinem Museum zu sehen wo er neben diesem Werk noch Hogwarts, das weiße Haus und vieles mehr stehen hat.

Acton’s version of Minas Tirith is one of his biggest and most detailed matchstick models yet, as he has constructed his rendition of the tremendously ancient city that Tolkien says “appears hewn from the rock of Mount Mindolluin” in the White Mountains. Tolkien’s fortress city is said to tower 700 feet above the Pelennor Fields in Middle Earth’s land of Gondor. Acton’s matchstick version of the seven-level city was started in 2007 and took nearly three years when completed in February 2010. The Minas Tirith model contains hundreds of city buildings and is topped with the Citadel, the Tree of Gondor, and the White Tower of Ecthelion.
