When I go to Chinese restaurants, I am always amazed at the carrots that are carved out as temples. I use to wonder how much time and skill was involved in making them.

Watching this video of a watermelon being carved into a dragon, the artist makes it look so easy.

They start off with a nice clean canvas.

After what would have taken a while, the first half is done. Look at those intricate details.

This is one watermelon I would not want to eat, and would just stare at it in awe until it went rotten.
