::I just got 'tatered

Many websites that captivate me are the ones introduced to me by my brother Joel.
Wooster Collective is one such example.

Today, while browsing there, I found this:

Potato portraits.

The artist, a Lebanese woman named Ginou Choueiri, explains her work thusly:

I chose the potato to portray human faces because of the many striking parallels. Not only is their skin porous like ours, but their skin texture and color is very similar, and like us, they come in different sizes, shapes and forms. Potatoes grow, live, and then decay, mirroring the ephemeral existence and fragility of our own human nature.
