This was quite an interesting piece of art! Found it quite complex but not sure I know what it symbolizes.

I love the fact that the spoon is actually designed for lying down and posing for photos. It’s a truly local monument.

Big deal with locals. Good photo op. It's on the way as you walk to the White Arbor so it's worth taking a look. As far as a stand alone attraction ... Don't think so.

One of the famous dishes in Ukraine is the local dumpling. This monument is a huge plate of dumplings. This reminds you to go eat some! :p

Not sure what to say about a big bowl of dumplings that people sit on and amidst to have their photo taken. Well, it's between the White Rotunda and Uspensky Cathedral so,,,, why not stop and take photo.

This type of places is for 'been here done that' people. I didn't know that Poltava dumplings are famous. When I see the monument I know they are.
