Chocolate Putin - level 2
For a chocolate festival in St Petersburg, a man made a chocolate statue of Vladimir Putin. He needed around 70 kilograms of chocolate to make the life-size sculpture.
Unfortunately, the Russian President was too busy to sit for the sculpture – the artist had to study photos of Putin instead.
The leader wasn’t alone – the sculptor also made a life-size model of the president’s late dog, Connie.
The festival organisers are offering the statue to its model. So maybe, Putin will eat his chocolate self.
Difficult words: statue = sculpture (a 3D model of something), sculptor (somebody who makes sculptures), late (dead).
