Here is a selection of pumpkin carvings of animals that were carved by the monks of the Self Realization Fellowship, by lay members of the Self Realization Fellowship, as well as by residents of Encinitas California and the surrounding communities in North County San Diego. Pumpkins like these are carved each year and displayed throughout the downtown area along Highway 101. Some are simple jack-0-lantern style carvings, some have shaved rind , some are painted and one even has colorful cotton added the a bright multi-colored effect.
There were so many different pumpkin carvings at the event, that I had to spread them out over several blog posts. You can view them in the categories below.
Note: the categories with inactive links will be coming soon.
