Iced Fruits Wall Decal

Fruit, vegetables, coffee cups, wine glasses, kitchen utensils, chefs with laughably large toques and roosters are some of the images that appear when you search 'kitchen art' on just about any poster/art website. Why? Who said that that's what constitutes art appropriate for the kitchen?
