Wide-Eyed Mennonites & Butter

 

 

I took this picture a few weeks ago at the Kansas State Fair. In a room filled with award-winning scarecrows, flower pots, arrangements of vegetables on card tables, ears of corn, and jars of wheat, this refrigerated case displayed two monkeys bucking on wild sheep. Out of the frame, a docile butter turtle, as confused as us, witnessed the scene.

I wrote a piece about the history of the butter sculpture, which you can read and listen to [here]
