Pumpkin Carvings of People

pumpkin carvings of peopleIn this blog, I’ve compiled a few photos of pumpkin carvings of people. It’s incredible how much detail can be carved into a pumpkin to make it look like a well-known face. From historical figures to everyday people, these pumpkin carvings of people capture a life-like quality that is entertaining to view. 

Like the other pumpkin photos that I have posted lately, these pumpkin carvings of people were featured at a Halloween event in Encinitas, California. The annual event showcases pumpkins carved by the monks of the Self Realization Fellowship and other various community members.

Here are the other categories of pumpkin carvings from the event. You can browse the following pages on my blog to get more ideas for making your own Halloween pumpkins.
