Kathy Lynn Gray, of The Columbus Dispatch, wrote and filmed an interesting article about this year's butter sculptures at the Ohio State Fair. The Adena Effigy Pipe, our state artifact, and Flint, our state gemstone(link), are both represented as Ohio symbols in the butter sculpture display at the Ohio State Fair.

"So many sculptures were in the works this year that the artists ran out of the 55-pound blocks of butter they normally use and had to order in 1-pound blocks.
About a half-million people typically visit the sculptures at the fair, which runs through Aug. 3."
