San Antonio Man Does Incredibly Good Pumpkin Carving of Manu Ginobili


Manu Ginobili may have his fair share of murals dedicated to him, but now he can say his likeness has been captured in pumpkin form.

Arthur Alaquinez shared photos to his social-media accounts of his pumpkin carving tribute to Spurs legend Manu Ginobili. He actually did two tributes in one, capturing a closeup portrait of our favorite Argentinean as well as his signature look from behind with him looking off to the side.
Alaquinez said the carving took him a day to complete, using clay-cutting tools to get his work just right.

A self-taught artist, Alaquinez said he's been carving Spurs-themed pumpkins since 2015 when he paid tribute to Tim Duncan with a Punisher design.
