The 25 Most Insanely Impressive Pumpkin Carvings of 2017

Did you know that pumpkins are technically considered fruit?

Pablo Picasso once said, “sculpture is the art of the intelligence.” When he said that, the famed artist, womanizer, and lover of striped shirts probably wasn’t thinking about pumpkin carving, the tee-ball of the form. But damn if pumpkin carving isn’t great and damn if people don’t get, really, really, really into it. Now that social media (read: Instagram) has made great carving into an orange come-on for sweet, sweet likes, people are getting even more serious and a hell of a lot weirder. This year’s most impressive carvings are so insanely over the top that they do actually rise to the level of art. Great art? Nope. Good art? Probably not. Art that you can put a candle in and then clean off the lawn after a dipshit teenager hits it with a bat? Definitely.

We found some of the most creative, intricate, and flat-out crazy ways that folks have turned gourds into works of art.

  1. Do you plan on sending your kids back to school this fall?
    Yes. I trust that our schools are taking precautions.
    No. We don't feel that proper precautions are in place.
    I'm not sure yet. It depends on how things progress.
Thanks for the feedback!
