Students at a Japanese confectionary school have mixed sugar and other ingredients to recreate a famous painting from the Edo period.
Would-be confectioners at Kokusai Seika in Tokyo's Tachikawa City used powdered sugar and egg whites in the technique called "sugar art". They recreated a "fusuma" sliding screen painting depicting chickens by artist Ito Jakuchu.
They created the background from chunks of gold-colored bread.
The artwork, which stands one-meter 20 centimeters high, will be on display through Sunday at a department store in the city.
Visitors appeared impressed by the elaborate detail on show.
A student said achieving the colors was difficult, and she hopes many people will enjoy the work.
