Mermaid of 87,000 Toothpicks!!!

I took this picture the other day of this wooden mermaid that is in the window of the Visual Art Studio located at 208 W. Broad Street (not to be confused with the Visual Arts Center).

The mermaid lured me into the studio once I saw the tag from the window stating that it was made from 87,000 toothpicks!!!  The piece is entitled Pamlico & is the work of artist Greg Lewis.  He also has a toothpick Marlin & a toothpick JFK bust in the studio.

It’s amazing to see what one person can do with an everyday object like a toothpick.  Go check out his work before it’s gone!  You will never look at a toothpick the same way!
