La Noche de los Rabanos

As I'm reading Becoming Naomi Leon, I cannot help but become increasingly more interested in what these elaborate radish carvings entail! I began to do some searching and found the following link:

As it turns out, there is an entire gallery of photos taken at the La Noche de los Rabanos celebration! The artists' talent and the intricate detail that goes into these carvings is absolutely fascinating! Hopefully you all can take a quick look.

Here are just a few of my favorites:


  1. Wow, I was wondering what they would look like! thanks for posting these pictures! These are very amazing creations! I wonder what Naomi's soap carvings look like!

  2. Thanks for posting these! So fun to look at (and so incredibly humbling to think about the kind of creation I would end up making!)
