Best Edible Sculpture (2008)


Who says fine artists can't put food on the table, or at least on a stick? CARVED-MANGO VENDORS do it all the time, with their outsized natural lollipops in fanciful floral motifs. Even the snack 'n' sugar-water giants know that, above all, people crave novelty and unique objects (you better believe everyone's drinkin' Pepsi Blue for the blue, not the Pepsi), and with the mango carvers' art each piece is an original, in an endless edition, free from any snobbish fear of mass consumption. (In season, of course)
