Toothpick Architecture, Paper Cutting Art at Fuller Craft Museum.

Susan and I traveled to the Fuller Craft Museum to see the Stan Munro exhibition of toothpick-constructed buildings, and some contemporary paper-cutting artists.  It was, as usual, a fascinating and awe-inspiring display, and once again we really appreciate all that the Fuller does for some of the alternative artists.  Here are some photos.
Fenway Park, perhaps his masterpiece(reflecting a certain prejudice).
Empire State Building in the background.

It is hard to imagine the time involved, and the patience.
