A man has spent the past 30 years re-creating his city, San Francisco, out of toothpicks.

Scott Weaver’s love for his city was the motivation behind the piece of art.

It started out as a hobby in his living room but the final sculpture is now on view in a museum.

‘Why toothpicks? Why not?’ Mr Weaver told a reporter.
