The Sculpture Made of Rice

The life size sculpture above is actually created not using using stone but rice. 100 pounds of rice to be precise.

It was created by the Japanese artist Saeri Kiritani who used the rice to symbolize her Asian heritage.

Speaking about the work Kiritani said: “I grew up in Japan, where rice was the biggest part of my diet. It still is. You could say that the cells of my body are made mostly from rice,”

The sculpture will be displayed at the Smithsonian Institute’s National Portrait Gallery from March 23rd to February 2014.
