I can’t say that I have seen many creative works using the Lincoln Memorial, but this one is kind of cute. As if the earmuffs and mittens didn’t dress it up enough, they really put the icing on the cake (cookie?) with the blue bowtie.
As for the reason for this strange sculpture, it was for a benefit for City Harvest. Patti Paige used Lincoln’s favorite food, gingerbread, to create a cookie sculpture and display it at Le Parker Meridien hotel in New York City. I think she did a pretty fantastic job, too.
