Every autumn the people of Jucker Farmart, an amazing farm located in Seegräben, a municipality in the canton of Zürich, Switzerland, organize an awesome celebration of the harvest season in the form of an impressive and entertaining pumpkin exhibition. The annual event attracts visitors from near and far and gives farmers a chance to show off their produce. One of the ways they do this is by assembling their colourful gourds into large and whimsical pieces of art. A different theme for the pumpkin sculptures is chosen each year - usually something relevant to that year’s current events. So this year, because of the 2012 Summer Olympics, the chosen theme was Olympic sporting events. In the top photo you see the Dressage display, photographed by Jonathan Jones

Back in 2010 the theme was dinosaurs. Adrian Senn photographed the awesome pumpkin Tyrannosaurus Rex seen in the second photo. Fearsome though he clearly is, there’s something about that T. rex that makes us want to give him a hug.
