Liberty Leading the People by Eugene Delacroix

Ju, a former website and computer game designer in the Sichuan province has been producing art from vegetables since 2006.

The 35-year-old artist boils, dries or pickles vegetables to perfect their appearance before assembling them, adding the fastest-rotting ingredients last. After photographing her work, she turns it into a meal.

She is able to produce one or two works of art per month which sell for $1500 to $2000. Her work is currently on display in a Bejing gallery for two months.
