This Dragon Is Carved Out Of A Watermelon, And It's INTENSE

Well, this certainly puts your vodka-soaked watermelon trick to shame.

Valeriano Fatica, whose Facebook bio describes him as a painter, sculptor, performer and carver of fruits and vegetables, carves a slew of different faces and objects into the likes of watermelons and pumpkins.

For his most recent project, Fatica replicated the head of a dragon into a long watermelon, complete with intricate scales and precisely detailed eyes.

Carving a ferocious animal into a beloved summer fruit is cool enough on its own, but the badass music in this video doesn't hurt, either.

Head to Fatica's YouTube page to see more of his stunning artwork in action.
