'Dining on the Ritz' by Laura Ann Jacobs

Bay Food magazine reports that San Francisco artist Laura Ann Jacobs made brass castings of some saltine crackers and then painstakingly painted the castings to look like crackers again. Voila. "Dining on the Ritz," a five-inch-high sculpture of a dining table and chair set that looks as if it's made out of saltines, but you'd better not sneak a bite.
