Amazingly detailed sculptures carved out of watermelon

Clay? Paper? Metal? No? Then how about fruit? Vancouver sculptor and extreme pumpkin carver, Clive Cooper has come up with some amazing sculptures carved from watermelon.

Fruit carving is a very common technique in Europe and Asian countries, and particularly popular in Thailand, China and Japan. While most professionally-carved fruit are for parties and special occasions, they’re usually meant to look pretty. Clive’s carvings, on the other hand, are more like jack-o-lanterns, resembling frightening, funny, and clever images. Which makes sense since he primarily deals with pumpkins.
