I was asked by @lekkervanbijons to create 3 bento's, and his is my first creation, The Mars bento with cute little 'Curiosity' rover made using Nazareth Classic.
I created this bento specially for my dear husband. When he was a little boy, he always wanted to be an astronauts. Sadly he was myopic and had to wear glasses. 👓 This shattered his dream even before it got started. 😭 However, he didn't give it up completely, he chose to study a branch of science closer to his dream and today he becomes a scientist... in medical science to be exact, and has nothing to do with Astronomy! 😂 (That's life, rarely goes according to the plan!) However, he has always been fascinated by outer space mysteries and explorations until today. 🔭🚀🌠 When I first looked at the Nazareth Classic and its many holes, it was like bam... I saw the moon and planet surfaces appeared right in front of my eyes. Sliced Nazareth with paprika powder is then used to make the red planet itself in this bento, and Nazareth with turmeric powder for the stars. Mars has 2 moons called Phobos and Deimos. I constructed them from the Nazareth block cheese, made 2 small round cuts, then covered them with freshly ground black sesame seeds. The actual star of this bento is none other than the 'Curiosity' rover. Do you know that the 'Curiosity' was actually meant to be operational on Mars for 2 years only? And yet it is still working until today 8 years later! Such a cool little brainy machine/lab/vehicle @nasa @explorenasa Back to my 'Curiosity' now... it was made from a block of Nazareth cheese with nori detailing.
This was my first 'Interactive Bento', because of 'Curiosity'... you could play with it during lunchtime in your bento box then eat it! 😁👍 New ideas usually come unintentionally!
