Fairy tale figurines from vegetables by Huyen Tran Chau

From Germany: Fairy tale figurines from vegetables:

Vietnamese master cutter Huyen Tran Chau has crafted a series of fairy tale figurines made from vegetables. A selection will be exhibited in the city library in the German town of Lübeck. The artist herself was present at the official opening.

Huyen Tran Chau was inspired by the Grimm Brothers' fairy tales. She used a simple kitchen knife to cut out the figurines, and utilized certain spices to add color.

Cutting vegetables has become a venerable art form in Asia. The aim is to please the eye as well as the tongue.

The exhibit will run till November the second.
I couldn't find more images from this exhibit other than the one above but here are some old images by the same artist that I found on a different blog here and here. I love these. They are quite fun.
