Ah, yes, it really is lobster shell motorcycles

God created lobsters for two things: 1) for humans to experience the eternal fine dining experience heaven has to offer in the form of a crustacean and 2) to make really cool motorcycle sculptures with its bright orange carcass.

Huang Mingbo, a Taiwanese chef and food carving expert, showed his students at a cooking seminar in China the true purpose of a crustacean’s shell – to become the mean machines of the ocean. Using only five lobster shell, he was able to fashion out two incredibly detailed motorcycles. Now that’s taking playing with your food to a whole new level.
