Artist Peter Root Sculpted Soap to Make This Landscape

Instead of chemical paints and clay, this artist sculpted soap to create this landscape. It's likely the best smelling art out there. The landscape is completely hand-carved with the use of honey and almond scented soap.

Artist Peter Root is known for sculpting city scenes with odd everyday items including foods, but this one is extraordinary. It must have taken some intensified hand-work to keep these bars of soap from starting to make suds.

The landscape resembles a volcanic terrain. There are many craters made with the soaps and ridges of rocks. It seems as though there is even swirls of sand. There are also well over 50 bars in the images, so it's unbelievable to think of the time taken to craft each one. He must have had some very clean hands.
