Carving Hands

Carving Hands

Scott Cummins, an artist and school teacher, carves pumpkins as a hobby. We decided to share a few examples of his amazing work. This pumpkin is a tribute to the famous Dutch graphic artist M.C. Escher’s 1948 lithography,“Drawing Hands.” Scott pays homage to him and calls this piece of pumpkin art “Carving Hands.” 960 1280
