53-year-old artist Scottish artist David Mach uses tens of thousands of matchsticks to create sculptures of animals, as well as religious and political icons. He first creates a plastic or fiberglass mold, and then inserts the matchsticks, one at a time. His work sells anywhere from $30,000 to $52,000... unless he sets the piece on fire, of course.
(Mach also has a gorilla sculpture made from 3,000 wire coat hangers currently on display at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in London. The piece is valued at nearly $400,000. Scroll all the way down to view.)
