Fruit carving is a long time art form in Thailand. Once only taught to women to decorate the tables of royals, it has been increasingly popular in the last few years thanks to social media and the increasing enrollment in culinary schools.
Most of the intricately styled pieces are carved from one piece of fruit — usually melons, but radishes, carrots, squashes and more can be used.
Fruit carving isn’t limited to Thailand. These beauties are from an Italian sculptor named Valeriano Fatica. Instead of doing floral carvings, she loves taking realistic animals and pop-culture into her edible art.
