Often regarded as bad taste and kitsch almost everywhere else in the world, "fake food samples" (3D models of the food a restaurant serves, displayed in glass cases outside the restaurant) are an important part of Japanese culture. And not just because they address a very real practical issue ("What does this dish really looks like?") but also because of the craftsmanship involved in their production. If you thought Japanese artisans are limited to pottery and woodwork, thank again! The detail that goes into fake food samples like the ones used in Fake Food Sample iPhone 7 Case will blow your mind!
The Food Sample iPhone 7 Case is available in four designs: curry (with rice); gyudon (beef on rice with onions and red ginger); beef steak with garlic and Welsh onions on rice; and salmon and salmon roe on rice. Each is painstakingly detailed using a multitude of synthetic materials. The result is fixed on a polycarbonate case that will fit perfectly on your iPhone 7, complete with openings for the camera, buttons, connectors, and so on. A pop culture masterpiece and a constant reminder of the breadth of Japan's gastronomical choices.
