The Wider Image: 11 million matches later 
Janusz Urbanski has a one of a kind chessboard he never plays, a personalised guitar he does not strum and a boat he cannot sail. Why? They are all made from tens of thousands of matches. For the last 40 years, the former Polish miner and ironworker has harboured a passion to build replicas of objects, buildings and famous sites with just matchsticks and glue.

A man lights up a pipe as he sits in a hutong, Chinese for small alley, in central Beijing 
A man lights a pipe as he sits in a hutong, Chinese for small alley, in central Beijing August 18, 2010. Only a quarter of Chinese people believe smoking tobacco increases the risk of cancer and anti-smoking campaigns are failing to influence them, a government survey released on Tuesday by the country's Centre for Disease Control and Prevention showed. In a country where 301 million people smoke, only 16 percent of current smokers are looking to quit in the coming year, and barely one in four adults believes smoking increases the risks of lung cancer, strokes and heart attacks, showing perhaps a lack of understanding about the dangers.
