The late Norma Lyon was "a self-described dairy farmer's wife and mother of nine who achieved fame well beyond the Midwest as the 'butter-cow lady' of the Iowa State Fair".
She died on July 24, 2011 in Marshalltown, Iowa. She was 81.
Lyon is seen here putting the finishing touches on a butter bust of President Barack Obama.

Monks carry a butter sculpture for display at the Ta'er Monastery on Feb. 12, 2006, in Huangzhong County of Qinghai Province, China.
Butter sculpture, or 'Suyouhua,' is an ancient Tibetan Buddhist art. Made from yak butter of ghee, the sculptures are shaped as Buddhas, people, animals and flower figures. Before making the sculpture, monk artists must bath and pray during a special ritual ceremony. Since butter melts easily, the artists have to dip their hands into cold water to make their fingers cold enough before modeling the butter.

Some 20 monks took 70 days to prepare the elaborate sculptures made of butter for display during the Butter Sculpture Festival at the Kumbum monastery, one of the six largest Geluk (Yellow Hat) monasteries, established in 1650 to mark the birthplace of Tsongkapa, founder of the Yellow Hat school of Tibetan Buddhism.
