Fruit Carvings - Thai Style
These fruit carvings, a Thai artform, are breathtaking in their precision and intricacy of design.
During yesterday's celebrations for the Thai New Year at City Hall, I watched in fascination as a women demonstrated how to turn a tiny red radish into a lovely blossom with delicate red and white petals.
Pictured here are some of the lavish carvings of melons that were created for the event. Are they not astonishing?
