The Crazed Pumpkin Art of Ray Villafane

We’ve covered the astonishing pumpkin carving of Ray Villafane here before, and interviewed him. His work just keeps on getting more outrageous. Here he is going to town on the world’s largest pumpkin last week at the New York Botanical Garden. Ray’s gruesome creativity was captured by Inhabitat New York City. The pumpkin weighed over 1,800 pounds and apparently was filled with zombies.
