Cityscapes Made From Carved Potatoes

Cities made from potatoes. That sounds kind of delicious and stachy. Istanbul based artist Peter Root spent about three weeks carving 176 pounds of the root vegetable to come up with a fairly well detailed city. It gets way more impressive when you realize that he attacked the heap of potatoes armed with only a kitchen knife and a bicycle repair kit. The detailed model of the city has windows on buildings, places of worship and even takes care of minute details like TV Aerials.
