Japanese Artist Sculpts Unique Creations out of Bananas
October 24, 2011 | by Lycurgus

If you want to make it as an artist, apparently the thing to do is make sculptures out of fruit.

Enter Japanese artist Keisuke Yamada, an artist who sculpts a variety of things out of bananas, using only a spoon and a toothpick. His subjects include popular cartoon character Marge Simpson, the Greek god Poseidon, and the King of Rock & Roll, Elvis Presley.

The Poseidon sculpture is perhaps the most impressive, as it depicts banana horses and the god of the sea holding a sceptre. But what makes all of this so impressive? The speed.

Due to bananas’ tendency to rot pretty quickly, Yamada must carve his creations within about a half-hour. Any longer and he runs the risk of the bananas becoming unusable.

Once he’s done carving them, they get eaten. At least he takes photos beforehand.
