Behold the Hyperbolic Coffee Cactus, created by Nick Sayers out of "630 coffee stirrers, drilled with 2,520 holes, pinned together with 1,260 half cocktail sticks. All by hand."

George Hart of Make Magazine explains:

Nick Sayers enjoys making geometric constructions from unusual materials. Here’s an organic-looking sculpture he made from 630 coffee stirrers, with “blobs” protruding in the twelve directions of a dodecahedron‘s faces. [...]

Each “blob” form is based on half an icosidodecahedron, with small triangles surrounded by three large pentagons.
