The It's Not What It Seems art series is a great visualization for the common adage, "Don't judge a book by its cover." Its title prepares viewers for a fun bit of deception, except that at first it might be hard to figure out what the deception is. That is how well-executed the project is. While it appears to be made up of a cucumber, orange and eggplant, in reality the It's Not What It Seems series involves a banana, tomato and egg.

Conceived and created by Hikaru Cho, an artist born in Tokyo, Japan, and known for her hyperrealistic paintings, the It's Not What It Seems art series showcases her talent in a playful way. Visual News writes, "In transforming what we see, Cho is helping us re-think everyday objects along with human form and nature."
