Vik Muniz is known for using materials like wire, sugar, dirt, and chocolate sauce to create images that he then photographs. This Medusa Plate features an image of Muniz's recreation of Caravaggio's Medusa (1590, Gallerica degli Uffizi, Florence) rendered in pasta marinara. It can be displayed or used as a serving dish, allowing the Medusa image to be revealed as food is removed.
