Working with tiny pieces of wood, wood sculptor Seiji Kawasaki carves realistic foods that look almost good enough to eat—depending on your taste.

Kawasaki has exhibited work in a number of galleries around Japan, and you can see more of his work in this Facebook gallery. If you liked this, also check out the work of Randall Rosenthal.
