Mae West's Watermelon Man

This stunning MAE WEST carving was created for the Mae West Birthday Gala by a NYC master carver Hugh McMahon. For twenty years, Mr. McMahon has been carving pumpkins for Hallowe'en Howls and other occasions but he used a watermelon to render this sculpture of Brooklyn-born Mae West, dramatically lit with a low-wattage bulb.
What a great photo opportunity this was at the MAE WEST BIRTHDAY GALA, huge thanks to Hugh.
