We want to showcase the incredible “ice cream face” art of Makoto Asano.
He posts the faces, carved out of mini Häagen-Dazs ice cream pots, on his Instagram account. He’s been working on the project sporadically since at least 2012 (with a brief dabble in non-Häagen-Dazs ice cream and even bananas!) but has only now just started to attract attention.
Since Häagen-Dazs produce so many different flavors and seasonal specials, there is a wealth of colors and textures to choose from. And Asano responds with an inventive range of faces, expressions and styles.
But we wonder: does he eat them afterwards? And if so, does the “sculpting” affect the taste?
