Edible (and Itchy) Icelandic Landscapes

Inspired by the vast and exotic geography of Iceland, Canadian-Hungarian artist Eszter Burghardt uses food and wool to reconstruct her memory of the landscape. The series, "Edible Vistas and Wooly Sagas", is molded from "poppy seeds, coco powder, coffee, milk, and chocolate cake crumbs" and Icelandic wool—there are endless herds of native sheep wandering the countryside. She then captured the dioramas with a macro lens.

P.S. I recently made a trip there myself, and Eszter's color and emotion is pretty right on. It's a breathtaking country: ice-crystalized waterfalls, rolling green hills, fields of lava rocks that look like moonscapes, geothermal streams and pools...
