Among those who took interest in it were the Penza region governor Ivan Belozertsev and the regional Legislative Assembly chairman Valery Lidin.
They learned that the installation was made by the Penza region agricultural production and distribution cooperative “Khleb.”
It depicts a traditional Russian hut (izba) with its garden that includes a small windmill, several sunflowers in bloom, and a group of horses and pigs on pasture.
The whole installation is made of bread: the hut was “built” of 80 buns made of flour, milk, margarine, eggs and sugar, including 30 for roofing.
In total, the installation weighs 530 kg.
It took three bakers a week to complete their creation, which was later disassembled, brought to the cinema and concert hall on a GAZelle minitruck, reassembled, and decorated.
The eventual fate of the “Bread Hut” will be determined by representatives of the Penza region Agriculture Ministry. Some say it could be simply eaten in the end.
Moreover, the festivities also included a Russian bread loaf contest that brought together representatives from all areas of the Penza region.
The winners of the contest were the agricultural production cooperative “Khleb” from the Penza area, “Khlebozavod” from the Zemetchino area, and the Nizhny Lomov bread-baking complex, that received prizes.
