Carved Apple Skull

Paula A. Ibey carved this skull out of an apple.

This reminds me of the poison apple from Disney's Snow White. A skull appeared on the apple after the step mother dipped it into the poison potion. I like how the peel of this carved apple looks a bit like parted hair. The core and browning of the apple in the eye sockets look like it's rotting, though since the browning happens quickly, it's still a fresh apple. I like how the juice oozes out of the sockets. With Fall only a few days away and the air quickly chilling, this apple makes me want an apple pie. I might have to learn how to make one of those.
