Footballers portraits carved from Brazil nuts


An artist has gone nuts at the prospect of the looking FIFA World Cup and has carved the faces of five English football legends out of a handful of Brazil nuts – but can you tell who they are?

Using just a scalpel, magnifying glass and a 99p bag of Brazil Nuts, Quentin Devine spent around four days carefully engraving the portraits of Gary Lineker, Paul Gascoigne, David Beckham, Alan Shearer and current England star Wayne Rooney.


The artist, from Surrey, said he worked through more than 50 nuts in the challenge, which was set by TV channel Dave to celebrate its World Cup coverage, before he got it right.
