R2-D2 Still Life: The Fruit Bowl You’re Looking for

by Paul Strauss

R2-D2 is one of the most versatile maintenance droids out there. He can project holograms, repair spaceships, hack security systems, swim through swamps, and even vacuum your carpet. But I never thought about using R2 as a fruit bowl – until now.

Artist Dave Styerd (of Geek-Lee-Tist) created this still life using R2-D2’s head as a serving bowl for some delicious grapes, bananas, apples and oranges. The blue Bantha milk is a nice touch too. I have to say it’s kind of cruel that Dave had to decapitate the little droid though. I mean, why not use R5-D4? He already had a bad motivator unit and was headed for the scrap pile. Besides, his flat head would be less likely to tip over and spill fruit onto the table.

Regardless, I’m sure this will inspire some Star Wars geek out there to make an actual R2-D2 fruit bowl using a stainless steel mixing bowl, and e-mail us a picture once they’re done with it. Right?

But I digress. This 16.5″ x 11.7″ Giclee print is the perfect thing for any Star Wars themed kitchen or dining room. Grab one over on Etsy for $15 (USD).
