“My family is in the bakery business and I learned to bake when I was about 10,” says Kittiwat. “I want to speak out about my religious beliefs and dough can say it all. Baking human parts can show the audience how transient bread, and life, is. Also, my bread is still bread no matter how it looks.” (heiscoming.blog)

Human Figure Bread
Apparently decomposing arms and legs hang off rusty hooks while dozens of deformed faces gaze down on visitors at an odd bakery in Ratchaburi, west of Bangkok.
These macabre creations featuring the same ingredients used to make ordinary bread, mainly water and flour, were carved one-by-one fresh out of the oven by Thai artist Kittiwat Unarrom, who decided to break new ground with his art.
This brings weird to a whole new level. Thai Fine Art student and artist Kittiwat Unarrom is the son of a baker. All that baking exposure growing up has been a clear influence, but his artistic need to see things a little differently definitely flared up as he created the tacitly named “Body Bakery” – brutally, gruesomely, almost unbelievably realistic looking sculptures of dismembered human body parts sculpted entirely from bread.
“I wanted to look for new techniques and materials, new non-traditional concepts for applying my knowledge and skills,” Kittiwat, who holds a fine arts degree from Chulalongkorn University.
Dismembered human body parts covered in blood are packaged like fresh food found in supermarkets. To achieve this authentically horrific aesthetic, Kittiwat spent a great deal of time studying anatomy and visiting forensic museums while at the same time working to improve the taste of his artworks.
His edible pieces of art look so real that many visitors leave the bakery scared, while the shop attracts dozens of curious Thai and foreign tourists every week
Inspired and informed by anatomy books and visits to forensic museums, he makes sure that none of your various body part bread desires go unfulfilled: he also makes feet, hands, and internal organs which come displayed impaled on hooks. Made from dough, raisins, cashew nuts, and chocolate, all of the works on display are totally edible. (insert cannibalism joke here.) (insert “eat me” joke here.) (insert “put your foot where your mouth is” joke here.)
