Shattered Squash

Artist Ray Villafane has so many crazy-cool pumpkin designs, it was hard to pick our favorite. It wasn’t hard, however, to marvel over the detail of this work, titled Shattered. From the leering face to the pieces of pumpkin that are bursting off the sculpture, this shatters our notion of the word Jack O’ Lantern.
