This Artist Carves Avocado Pits Into Magical Forest Creatures

Avocados are something millions of us eat every single day. The fruit has a delicious flavor and is extremely versatile. Now, unless you want to grow your own avocado tree, most of us just throw the pit inside the fruit away. One person who does much more with the seed is Jan Campbell. It all began when Jan was preparing an avocado for lunch and she was struck by the beauty of the pit. She felt inspired to carve away at the surface of the stone and was left with a beautiful creation. Needless to say, Jan developed and mastered her craft, the rest is history. To find out more about these wonderful carvings and to see some examples, take a look below!
