Thai carved fruits and vegetables are beautiful. The art form goes back to the 700 years. I got to see some carved right before my eyes at the 22nd Annual Asian Cultural Festival.
Below is an example of a green papaya transformed into a work of art.
Below is a watermelon that looks like a bouquet of roses.
And here a watermelon and ripe papaya compete for beauty in the picture below.
Finally a cantaloupe is given a three-dimensional floral face-lift.
