Ginou Choueiri is a Lebanese artist, based in Beirut, Lebanon. While some people see Christ in pita bread, Choueiri sees faces on potatoes. Choueiri’s Potato Portraits is part of a Lebanese-Italian exhibition titled “Hope and Doubts” at the Dome City Centre in Beirut.

From Choueiri’s site:
“I chose the potato to portray human faces because of the many striking parallels. Not only is their skin porous like ours, but their skin texture and color is very similar, and like us, they come in different sizes, shapes and forms. Potatoes grow, live, and then decay, mirroring the ephemeral existence and fragility of our own human nature.”
