This is not a fake image or painting, but rather a real kitchen created by artist Liza Lou. She spent 5-years building this life-sized kitchen and backyard using lots of tiny glass beads. These brightly colored glass beads are known as "seed beads" and often used for making jewelry. These "seed beads" cover the food, the water in the sink, the furniture and fixtures, and all 250,000 blades of grass in the backyard.
