The Garden of Forkly Delights

I have finished. I only made a portion of the painting and only the important characters, but after a month and a half of burned fingers, smelling like candles, and potentially inhaling toxic fumes my vision has finally come to fruition. So here they are, my lovely "forkinators"...
(This is a reenactment of the painting "The Garden of Earthly Delights" by Hieronymus Bosch. It consists of forks and spoons only, no glue and no paint. The red stuff is fondant.)









































































Thank you Melissa for the idea to make this and thank you mom for helping me get the cake out of the pan.
