This is the first time I heard about this and it sounds very delicious. :D Really, does this "art" really exist and where can we go to appreciate it?

See this article about a woman in Iowa.




I would say that butter sculpturing is over a century old. However, the earliest documented butter sculpture dates back to around 1536. The 21st century saw these taking a more modern perspective started in the twentieth century.
