Meet Alex Wer, a man known as The Pumpkin Geek—a nickname he earned mastering the fine art of pumpkin carving.

Technically, he’s using artificial craft pumpkins—because if you were able to carve a work of art onto a pumpkin, you probably wouldn’t want it to rot—but nonetheless, his portraits are incredible.

You can see some highlights from his Instagram feed below.

And if you, too, want to display an eerily lifelike carved pumpkin in your home, you can actually commission one on his website.
