272. (Who Cut The) Cheese Skull(?)

Carved Swiss Cheese (4in x 4.5in x 5in [10cm x 11.5cm x 13cm]). I was incredibly lucky with this one since I had only one block of cheese and no idea where the holes would be inside when I started carving. Incredibly they turned up in one of the eyes and behind the nose! Here's another view:

Emmentaler is always full of surprises, but it's a nice cheese indeed. I get hungry with all the food-skulls, Gruyère will have to do it.

Thanks to this cheese now strikes me as a beautiful carving material. So many different kinds with veins of colour in them, like marble. Too bad it's ... cheese.

I love this one. I'll have to point it out to my friend Colin, the cheese enthusiast!

If I had the talent to do something like that, I'd be tempted to drizzle raspberry sauce from the "wounds." Alas, no cheese-carving skill here.

I keep thinking that the skull might have belonged to someone who died while trying to catch golf balls at a driving range.

Oooh, the holes are like trepanations!
