Butter Sculpture Offers Cavs Fans New way to Savor NBA Title

July 27, 2016 10:20 AM

Fans of the Cleveland Cavaliers now have a new way to savor the team's NBA title.

The Cavs are being honored with butter sculptures at this year's Ohio State Fair, which opened Wednesday in Columbus.

The butter sculpture display includes life-sized Cavaliers' mascots Moondog and Sir C.C., along with the Larry O'Brien Trophy. The trophy sculpture is about 4 feet tall, much larger than the actual award.

The display took about 2,150 pounds of butter and 500 hours to complete. The sculptors began by building wooden and steel frames to support the sculptures' weight. They then formed each sculpture from 55-pound blocks.

The American Dairy Association Mideast has sponsored butter sculptures since the early 1900s. The displays are inspired by a theme representing something "optimistic and non-controversial" about Ohio.
