My Own Arcimboldo Food Face

You may be familiar with the Italian painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo (1527-1593), who made portrait paintings where the faces were made up of fruits, vegetables, and other assorted objects. One day, while preparing an otherwise uneventful lunch, we decided to grab some ingredients out of the refridgerator and make our own Arcimboldo "food face."
