LEGO play-sets all come with a warning that they should not be used by children under four, as the small pieces make for quite the choking hazard. However, such a warning is applicable to those of all ages who find themselves face to face with the work of Tary, a Japanese artist who has created LEGO sculptures of food so realistic that one could actually drool.

Using a wide variety of colored bricks from preexisting LEGO sets, Tary has wrought creations from all manner of food groups and cultures. The key to these success of these sculptures is his attention to detail, such as the gooey cheese slowly dripping off his slice of pizza sculpture, or his ice cream cone that seamlessly melts into a puddle. The traditional Japanese dish of shrimp tempura over a bowl of rice even won him the first place prize in an original LEGO model contest.

Tary’s food sculptures are on display at the LEGO store in Tokyo through May 31.
