Latte artists, looks like you've got competition.

Avocado art has somehow become a thing, if our obsession with the fruit wasn't already stopping people from being able to purchase their own homes or whatever. 

The soft fleshy interior of the avocado might make an ideal surface for carving, but it'd surely be a race against time to ensure it doesn't go brown. 

Which is why it's worth admiring this mind-bendingly detailed piece of work by 26-year-old Italian artist Daniele Barresi, who carved this for Amsterdam-based restaurant The Avocado Show.

"When I touch my knife, my mind gives up to the heart and it transmits directly, to the hands, giving different forms to the decorations. It’s like magic," Barresi explains in a post on Bored Panda.

And no, it's not a one-off. There's plenty of other examples of avocado art out there too.

No wonder baby boomers can't help but make fun of millennials for their avocado obsession.
