Gingerbread Monolith

Heh

In true pop-up art fashion, the 7-foot-tall monolith made of tasty and aromatic gingerbread mysteriously appeared in San Francisco and then – perhaps unsurprisingly – collapsed the next day.

The tower, held together by icing and decorated with a few gumdrops, delighted the city on Friday when word spread about its existence.

People trekked to Corona Heights park throughout the day, even as light rain fell on the ephemeral, edible art object. In one video posted online, someone took a bite of the gingerbread.

Phil Ginsburg, head of city’s Recreation and Parks Department, told KQED the site “looks like a great spot to get baked” and confirmed his staff will not remove the monument “until the cookie crumbles”.
