Super Mario Bros. Title Screen Drawn With 14,000 Toothpicks

Japanese Mario superfan @BitBlt_Korry used over 14.000 painted toothpicks to recreate the title screen from the original NES (or Famicom, to the natives) version of Super Mario Bros..
Not counting the paint, BitBit Korry spent 10,000 yen ($84) on toothpicks. It seems that toothpicks make a great substitute for 8-bit pixels, so maybe we’ll see more retro games recreated with thin wooden sticks soon.
