Thai Fruit Carving Tent, 22nd Asian Cultural Fest, Homestead, Fla.

Thai carved fruits and vegetables are beautiful. The art form goes back to the 700 years. I got to see some carved right before my eyes at the 22nd Annual Asian Cultural Festival.

Below is an example of a green papaya transformed into a work of art.

Below is a watermelon that looks like a bouquet of roses.

And here a watermelon and ripe papaya compete for beauty in the picture below.

Finally a cantaloupe is given a three-dimensional floral face-lift.
