Butter sculpture by Chilean artist Santiago de Crespo (via Reddit)
Chile has a long and storied history of melting butter sculptures into a variety of other forms, but one of the most famous is of a young girl called Santini, whose body is adorned with a massive buttered stick.
Santini is the only known living sculpture of the sculpture and was created in the 1930s in the Chilean capital of Santiago.
Today, she’s one of many sculptures that feature her image.
The sculpture, which is in its seventh year, is part of a larger campaign called “Santini and the Butter” that aims to raise awareness about the devastating effects of climate change on the environment and the global community.
In an interview with Quartz, Santini’s artist Santiago De Crespos described the sculpture as “a kind of a symbol, a symbol of the suffering of the human race, the destruction of the environment, and also the destruction by the use of technology of the planet and all life on it.”
Santini has been sculpted with a variety different tools, and has a wide variety of different shapes and colors, according to De Cresso.
“In my mind, I think of Santini as a symbol that represents a lot of the things that are happening right now in our world,” De Crepsos said.
De Crespoes told Quartz that he and the Chilean sculptor are working on another sculpture that will be up for public auction.
The artist did not have an exact time frame for the completion of the project, but said the artist has a “very good” schedule.
Santiago de Cresos said he wanted to create a sculpture that would help the world understand how humans are destroying the planet.
This is the first time I’ve seen a sculpture of Santi�s that I’m happy with and that I think is well-done, and I hope people will enjoy it, he said.
