It’s That Butter Sculpture Time of Year!

The State Fair of Texas started this weekend and, lest you think this is not the place for connoisseurs of fine art, the butter sculpture displays are a very popular part of the experience. Artist Sharon BuMann has been sculpting butter for the fair for 17 years and arrived this year on September 9 to begin her sculpture (above), which took more than 2,500 pounds of butter and nearly 200 hours to complete, reports the Blue Ribbon News.


Other butter works by BuMann: “Out of This World” and Udder Delight”
