Vegetable Paintings! What?

Vegetable Paintings
Take a close look at the picture above. This is Mona Lisa, created by a different artist. But, can you believe that this Mona Lisa portrait (though not perfect as the original) was prepared from vegetables? What? I am sure that you wouldn't believe me. Read on.

This is one of the vegetable paintings prepared by Ju Duoqi, a 35-year-old Chinese artist. Ju Duoqi is currently showing an exhibition of her "Vegetable Museum" paintings in Beijing, China. Her vegetable paintings include Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa and The Last Supper, Picasso’s The Dream, and Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe.

Ju said she prepared those vegetable versions of world's greatest paintings to encourage people to see everyday objects in a different way. Because ordinary things can be classic and outstanding. She is right, but many of us have time to look at these things? Nowadays, our lifestyles are becoming very mechanical and artificial. Am I right?
