A traditional bento box is art in its own right; this Japanese blogger has taken this food art one step further by recreating famous album covers.

Within the gallery, you'll see completed bento boxes next to their album cover counterparts. The level of detail and accuracy is remarkable, and the items that are paired together for the box are ones you'd expect to find in the same dish, like rice, seaweed and meat.

Implications - Businesses that devote their efforts to transforming a mundane daily activity to one that boasts excitement and thrill will likely appeal to a very wide audience. Consumers will invest in products that will provide them with a brief distraction from their tedious day-to-day responsibilities.
