Beauty’s in the Nose of the Beholder

Posted:

In Russia’s coldest region (Siberian Yakutia republic), artist Mikhail Bopposov created a massive, nearly 900-pound cobra statue (honoring the Chinese Year of the Snake) made entirely of cow dung. Though this time of year the sculpture freezes, Bopposov plans to sell it when it melts, since fertilizer is a valuable commodity during the area’s short summers. This is Bopposov’s second foray into dung art; last year he did a winged serpent for the Year of the Dragon.
