Japanese artist turns bananas into sculptures
While most people would look at a banana and simply see a delicious and nutritious snack, artist Keisuke Yamada sees a blank canvas.
The Japanese sculptor has begun carving faces ranging from Bart and Homer Simpson, to Alien's titular extraterrestrial monster into the potassium filled treat.
As The Roosevelts points out, this is the next step from the slightly more common practice of using banana peels as a canvas by using a pin to force the skin to oxidize and turn brown.
