This Artist’s Intricate Jack O’Lanterns Will Blow Your Mind


One Kentucky artist is getting drawing attention for his incredibly detailed Jack O’Lanterns.

Edward Cabral, of Louisville, runs the annual Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular, which features hundreds of uniquely carved pumpkins.

The Art Institute of Chicago graduate sets up his pumpkin display for the entire month of October for Halloween lovers to enjoy.

According to ABC News, Cabral spends up to 12 hours working on a single pumpkin’s design just to watch it be quickly destroyed by rot and poor weather conditions.

“I love art that gets destroyed,” the 28-year-old said. “It’s the Buddhist mentality of nothing being permanent. In this way, I can witness its entire life cycle. You’re not really worried about all these fine details.”

This year’s display features carved scenes of the Headless Horseman, as well as “Little Shop of Horrors” and “The Wizard of Oz.”
