Sculpturing has been a respected form of art since it began in ancient Greece. During the Middle Age, sculptures became a symbol of representing the passion of Christianity.
It can be done through the molding or carving of different materials such as clay, metal, stone, ceramics and wood.
A Nigerian man has redefined sculpturing by molding a human face with a piece of food he was supposed to eat.
The talented Nigerian man identified simply as IB Fortune came up with the genius idea after he got the inspiration while he was eating.
Fortune created the artistic sculpture with a popular Nigerian food known as Akpu or Fufu. The young man explained that he decided to make the art while eating.
Read what he wrote below:
"@ibfortune: Just got an inspiration while eating I decided to sculpt a human face with my fufu, I know some of you out there don’t know what is fufu. It is a typical igbo food which is called “Akpu” in igbo land it is made with cassava very easy to prepare.
