A woman of bread

A British woman baked a life-size model of her own naked body out of bread and watched an audience eat it, according to a Local 6 News report. Sharon Baker, of Epsom, Surrey, used 24 eggs and the largest oven that she could find to complete the life-sized artwork for an exhibition in London’s Docklands. Baker decided to bake the model after she lost one of her best friends to breast cancer. She said the piece represents the never-ending cycle of life. “It demonstrates the cyclical nature of life,” Baker said. “That things go on, that things get transformed, they never get destroyed.” Local 6 News showed photos of people carving pieces of her bread body and then eating them. – local6
