This ultra–realistic wooden food is the work of Japanese artist Siji Kawasaki. You’d be forgiven for wanting to dip into Kawasaki’s plateful of potato chips, or to take a bite out of his ultra-crunchy asparagus, so lifelike is his wooden food art.

Speaking to Bored Panda, Kawasaki suggests that his work is a kind of fan art for food: “The person who looks at my work feels like eating even though [they] know that it is actually wood. I think that’s very interesting. I think at the same time, my work is also a fan art of food. I’m a fan of food,” he says.

Well, we’re all fans of food, but not many of us would be able to carve and paint these kinds of objects in such exquisite detail. The teeth–cracking collection includes peppers, plump prawns, potato, and some crispy–looking croissants. And they’re making us very hungry indeed.

Head on over to Kawasaki’s website to see more.
