This collection of images by German art director Sarah Illenberger is the ultimate example of quirky food art.

The project entitled 'Strange Fruits' sees Illenberger re-imagine the classic Chanel lipstick with a bright orange carrot, a rubik's cube made from a cocktail of fruits, and an apple coated with human hair. Other images in the series include a beetroot handcrafted as precious diamonds, a laced-up banana and an aubergine with a wooden inside. Sarah Illenberger works from her Berlin studio and contributes work to a number of magazine editorials.

The fun pictures are sure to put a smile on your face, and these images look good enough to eat!
