These glamour models look good enough to eat but they won’t turn women green with envy -because they are made entirely of cabbage.Artist Ju Duoqi created the bizarre sculptures for her project called ‘The Fantasies of Chinese Cabbage’.The wacky works of art show glamorous looking women in a series of poses usually found in glossyfashion magazines.

1. Wilting beauty: One model hides her modesty with a leaf that looks like its seen better days

2. She’s tasty: This piece by Chinese artist Ju Duoqi, made entirely out of cabbage, is entitled Nowa. Every piece of the sculpture is made from the vegetable, including their clothes, hats and jewellery. A model is pictured lounging on a bed in one shot, with her hands on her hips in another and tastefully cupping her breasts in a third.

3. Veggie Venus: ‘Lili’ is another of artist Ju Duoqi’s wonderful creations

4. Cheeky: The artist insists she uses nothing but Chinese cabbage to make her amazing sculptures.

5. Raunchy: Nothing is left to the imagination in this piece.

6. Hat’s more like it: Ju uses fresh, withered, rotting, dried, pickled, boiled or fried cabbage to make her artwork.

7. One tasty dish? The coquettish looking ‘Sara’ piece shows the level of intricacy involved in the artwork. Ju, from Beijing, China, uses a knife to slice the different colours and varieties of cabbage and holds them together using toothpicks. The cabbage is left to age for varying lengths of time and then cooked in different ways to achieve a range of colours and textures. Ju has previously used other vegetables to recreate famous paintings by artists such as Leonardo Da Vinci, Vincent Van Gogh and Andy Warhol. She said: ‘The different types, shapes and colours of the vegetables, with a bit of rearranging, can make for a rich source of imagery. ‘Fresh, withered, rotting, dried, pickled, boiled or fried – they all come out different.’

8. Cool as a cucumber: The artist from Beijing must have been dicing for days to create this one.

9. More than a flash in the pan: Artist Ju Duoqi admires great painters like Van Gogh and Da Vinci.

10. Cabbage patch doll: One veggie model inspired by the Japanese harajuku style.

11. My floret lady: The ethereal effect created with red cabbage.

12. Under dressing: A burlesque pose with some artfully placed sprouts.

13. Virtuous veggies: The talents of artist Ju Duoqi know no earthly limits.
