Germany: Fairy tale figurines from vegetables

Vietnamese master cutter Huyen Tran Chau has crafted a series of fairy tale figurines made from vegetables. A selection will be exhibited in the city library in the German town of L├╝beck. The artist herself was present at the official opening. 

Huyen Tran Chau was inspired by the Grimm Brothers' fairy tales. She used a simple kitchen knife to cut out the figurines, and utilized certain spices to add color. 

Cutting vegetables has become a venerable art form in Asia. The aim is to please the eye as well as the tongue. 

The exhibit will run till November the second.
