American artist Matthew J Mahoney has created a life-sized "Darth Vader." Foreign media That's Nerdalicious reports.

However, if you look closely at this "Darth Vader", something is wrong. Actually, this is an art work made from banana peel!

The materials used are cardboard cut out into a Darth Vader shape, plywood, screws, and banana peel that has become overripe and black. The black banana peels are attached to the mold one by one, but he said that he used the adhesive strength of the banana peels themselves, not synthetic adhesives.

As you can see from a closer look at this work, the details of the face, such as the eyes and mouth, are represented by banana peel, which suggests that it would have required very delicate work. Looking further at the whole body, it seems that banana peels are placed along the ridges of Darth Vader's muscles on the arms and legs.

Did you want to make something out of banana peel, or did you come across a banana looking for a material to make Darth Vader? Anyway, I remembered the words of Professor Taro Okamoto, "Art is an explosion."
