Invasion of the Giant Sprouts

Wandering through a park in central Brussels recently I came across this:

Then I remembered: they’re specially commissioned sculptures to advertise the year-long Brusselicious festival. As with Art on Cows, artists are given a plain model and asked to decorate it any way they like, and so the park is full of varying versions of brussels sprouts, beers, mussels and a cone of fries. And they’re all for sale. It was raining and I had my 3 year old son with me so we didn’t get to go all the way around the park and see the full set, but my favourite was this railway-themed sprout.
