Fiberglass food busts, "Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter" by Phillip Haas
I came across an interesting piece in New York magazine's current issue. It referenced Giuseppe Arcimboldo's masterful portraits of produce arrangements and how artist Phillip Haas took things one step further, consturcting 15 ft tall fiberglass busts, replicating Arcimboldo's painting, "Four Seasons". Pictured above, clockwise from top left, "Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter", are Haas's sculptures. They are currently on display at the New York Botanical Gardens through the summer.
