People pay homage to the "king of fruits" - the durian (genus = durio, family = malvaceae), by making sculptures of them, and taking pictures with them.
British naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace wrote :"to eat durians is a new sensation worth a voyage to the East to experience".
Foodie Anthony Bourdain said : "your breath will smell as if you'd been french kissing your dead grandmother"

I was wondering about that giant durian but after reading your note, I realize it is a sculpture! A nice one! I like to see that smiling kid sitting on top of it!
I made a ws, hoping you don't mind, just to increase the contrast.
"french kissing your dead grandmother" yuk :)
