Imagine biting into an eggplant and feeling raw egg run from your teeth through its brittle shell… Talented Japanese artist Hikaru Cho has made such a bizarre experience possible by misleadingly painting these food items to look like totally different food products.

Which makes things all the more amusing when she cuts or opens the actual food product underneath.

Randall Rosenthal, a wood sculptor from New York, has become a modern master of an art form probably about as old as we are. What seems like a cardboard box full of cash is actually a wooden sculpture called “Cold Hard Cash” carved by Rosenthal out of a single (glued-together) block of wood.

Sydney-based artist Alex Seton creates these super-realistic sculptures of our everyday clothes – from cozy hooded sweatshirts to soft-looking t-shirts and sports costumes – from solid marble.
