Cheese Creation Has its Moo-ment 

Cheese sculpture.jpg

Giant sculpture takes spotlight at Indiana state fair

A 930-pound sculpture made its debut at the Indiana State Fair. It happens to be made out of cheese — yellow and white cheddar, to be exact.

The 7-foot-wide carving, called "Great Dairy Moo-ments in Cheese History," includes cheddar renditions of the first dairy cow to arrive in the United States in 1521, and the cow jumping over the moon.

Sarah Kaufmann, the sculptor, has been carving cheese for more than 20 years, doing it full-time for the past 15. The Wisconsin native, whose work is an annual attraction at the fair in Indianapolis, says that cheese carving just comes naturally.

Indiana's American Dairy Association commissioned this year's project. Kaufmann started drafting the blueprint for her masterpiece months ago, and it'll be on display until the fair closes.
