Chinese artist Ju Duoqi has recreated Western masterpieces in vegetables to amazing effect.

“In the summer of 2006, I bought a few kilograms of peas, and sat there quietly for two days peeling them, before stringing them on a wire and turning them into a skirt, a top, a headdress and a magic wand. I used a remote control to take a photo of myself in them, and named it Pea Beauty Pageant. That was my first work of vegetable art,” Ju Duoqi said, recalling her first vegetable composition.

The Guardian has a neat video of her process.
