Poltava – Poltava Dumplings Monument

This is meant to be one of the most photographed locations in the city, but it is marginally less appealing in the snow. It represents the local cuisine of dumplings, with what are 12 dumplings in a bowl with a giant spoon in front of them.

The work was unveiled on 1 April 2006 and the choice of date was deliberate, and the dumplings aren’t meant to be taken seriously. Although it seems some locals don’t like the whole arrangement and the city authorities had to move them to their current location from elsewhere in Poltava due to complaints.

I thought that it was a rather fun artwork and it has some meaning, so I’m sure it’ll remain a popular place for photos to be taken.
