Banana sculptures are pretty amazing.
Japanese banana artist Keisuke Yamada is based in Shiga Prefecture, Japan and has been turning bananas into tasty art since 2011.
To make these sculptures, Yamada, an electrician by trade, has to work fast otherwise the banana will start to go bad.
It’s basically a race against time before the banana goes mushy and turns brown.
Yamada uses spoons and toothpicks as his sculpting tools of choice.
The texture of the fruit is very fragile. And there is nothing you can do to cover up a mistake.
He tries to finish his creations in less than 30 minutes after the peeled banana has been exposed to air.
Keisuke Yamada said that once he’s finished, he quickly takes a photo after which he eats the banana.
