Many of us have some sort of hobby that we enjoy – whether building model airplanes, racing cars, knitting, collecting stamps, taking pictures, blogging, whatever…
And some others have rather unusual hobbies or pastimes such as making sculptures out of cheese. Oddly enough, this kind of “art” has grown in popularity the last few years. I’ve actually come across several websites or articles about these talented ‘cheese people’.
As we know, cheese pretty much goes with anything – wine, pasta, meat, vegetables… but I think the mere stench of one of these sculptures would be enough to shut down my sense of smell forever. Although I’m sure the artists are not using roquefort or camembert, working in an environment that smells like feet would not be the hobby I would have chosen for myself. Then again, I can’t sculpt (anything) for shit!
What do you think of these cheese sculptures? Are they art, cool, yummy or just a waste of food? Post your comments.
