Similar to most places in the world, big juicy melons are extremely popular in Japan. People everywhere keen to get there hands on them whenever possible.
Unfortunately they can be expensive — very expensive in fact. Although for a bit of variety, they are available in several shapes other than round. A situation that arguably enhances the pleasure of sucking on one. Making it a special treat of sorts.
Takashi Itoh however has taken this melon mania to a whole new level, creating works of art from the watery fruit. Describing his endeavour in this rather elaborate manner:
‘Watermelon sculpture’ which entertains the infinite possibility from white and red, and green colors. Cool and have after admiration.
Whilst ‘cool and have after admiration’ might be pushing things a little too far, Itoh-san undoubtedly has gentle hands where melons are concerned. The fruit fan creating a whole host of melon based sculptures. Like this sumo themed effort for example.
Or a similarly traditional kimono offering.
Countless more are viewable here, although sadly none of them are breast shaped. Putting a stop to any more fruit flavoured innuendo.
Which is a pity.
