If it's true that patience is a virtue, then British artist Peter Root has clearly demonstrated that he is a virtuous man by spending over 40 hours constructing a city using staples.

For his art installation he calls ‘Ephemicropolis’, Root broke stacks of staples into various sizes and arranged them over a floor area of approximately 600 x 300 cm, with the tallest ‘building’ being 12cm high.

Using only his hands—over 100,000 staples were stacked to build this massive metropolis of steel.
