Amazing Food Sculptures

Not only do I love food, but I love the way it looks too. Maybe that is why I was so bedazzled by these unbelievably realistic wooden food carvings created by (possibly very hungry) Japanese sculptor and painter Seiji Kawasaki. Have a look at these superb art works and ask yourself: firstly, would you honestly have been able to tell that they were man-made? And secondly, do you feel peckish?
 
Is that a bar of chocolate emerging from that plank of wood?

For Seiji this art functions by giving us positive feelings
Wooden food
When we say, 'I'd like to eat', we are thinking positively
Wooden food
Seiji is manipulating this feeling in us through his carving

He says: 'The person who looks at my work feels like eating even though he knows that it is actually wood. I think that’s very interesting'
Wooden food
He also sees his work as a homage to food
Wooden food
He explains: 'I'm a fan of food'
Wooden food
Well, I'm a fan of food too

And, Seiji Kawasaki, I'm a fan of your art also
