Pumpkins as Fine Sculpture (PHOTOS)

Some artists will forever be associated with certain holidays. Christmas? Charles Dickens. Bastille Day? Jacques-Louis David. Independence Day? Will Smith. Halloween, too, has its Tim Burtons and its Elviras, but October 31 may also inspire more amateur artists and hobbyists than any other holiday. We've collected ten of our favorite pumpkin designs, some of which approach the level of fine art. From a waterscape of the sinking Titanic to a Claes Oldenburg-inspired pumpkin burger, don't get too spooked by how much devotion it must take to become a Pumpkin Master.
