Feast your eyes on these exquisitely intricate artworks!

Avos may just be the best thing since sliced bread (or rather, the best thing on sliced bread) -- but's that not all they can be used for!

If you thought avocado lattes were taking the avo craze way too far then this new trend will leave you mind-blown. Avo art, anyone?

Avo art pieces have been showing up on Instagram feeds all over the show and people can't get enough. Pictures of the yummy green fruit open and intricately carved into beautiful patterns have been snapped by artists who saw the superfood as just another canvas for their creativity.

According to Artnet, the trend was started by Italian artist Daniele Barresi.

"When I touch my knife, my mind gives up to the heart and it transmits directly, to the hands, giving different forms to the decorations," he wrote on Bored Panda. "It’s like magic.”

Unfortunately, pieces like Daniel's -- which took an hour to carve -- won't last very long, as the avo will soon start to brown.

Here are some of our favorite avo artworks:
