Gold Carps, Lotus and Water Symbols

This fruit display was designed for a 60th anniversary of a Korean man. I decorated the display with lotus and gold carp sculptures which are the powerful symbols in asian culture. The wavy pattern in the watermelon is the water element. It unites all decorations in one display with a deep meaning.

There are lot of apple carvings and apple sculptures in my blog. Click here for more apple ideas.

Before carving apples read my tips "How To Carve Apples And Save Them From Getting Dark".

Lotus flowers are carved out of daikon (japanese radish) and colored with a food coloring. There is a carrot flower in the center.

Carps are sculptured out of pumpkin. They are decorated in both face and back sides. These fish require a good thai knife, U-knife and a steady hand in carving.

Korean Traditions in Sakhalin Island

In my previous post I wrote a little about birthday traditions.
60 year old birthday is a very important date for asian people. It's a big event with lot of guests.

I am sharing few photos of a head table. Traditionally it should be decorated in rich and bright ways, with pyramids of food and sweets.
In the begining of the event a big korean family take photographs at the table. Later the treats will be given away to the guests.

At the event I met Anna, a balloon designer and body painting artist. In the photo below she is arranging a spiral pillar of the balloons. In 2011 Anna helped me with painting my model at Eco-Fashion Show
