Keisuke Yamada Creates Banana Art That Will Haunt Your Nightmares (And Breakfasts)
We all know that bananas and banana peels are excellent sources of potassium and physical comedy, respectively, but did you know that they could also be used as a medium for art that will alternately amuse you and haunt you to your grave? Neither did I until I saw the work of Japanese “banana engraver” Keisuke Yamada, who has carved presumably edible versions of all manner of pop culture figures and/or mind-bending horrors.
Check out a few of our favorites — including characters from Attack on Titan, The Simpsons, Alien, Transformers, Castle in the Sky and Star Wars — below, and don’t worry: If one of these pops up in your breakfast tomorrow, you can always defend yourself with Yamada’s flintlock pistol. The flintlock pistol is also carved from a banana.
