Fruit and vegetable carving is a very old artistic tradition that originated in Thailand.
It was originally conceived as a tribute for the royal family. Fruits decorated the tables of aristocrats.
As you can imagine, it takes hours and and hours of patience, care, unbelievable precision, and a talent only a few have.
But recently, this ancient tradition has become a trend on Instagram.
And artisans from all over the world are flooding social networks with #thaicarving.
Now, there are some people who feel nothing but absolute pleasure when looking at these perfectly carved foods.
But others may have a feeling more similar to trypophobia.
And they can't stand to look at it for too long.
Maybe it's too much.
Or maybe it's just too perfect.
But no matter what you feel, it's undeniable that you will feel *something*.
And that, my friends, is the true purpose of art.
