2013 is the year of a snake according to the Eastern calendar. In one village of Yakutia locals made the symbol of the year from... cow manure. Now the weird cobra stands in the centre of the village and promises to bring happiness and prosperity in 2013.
To make the sculpture they needed 300-400 kg of cow manure. The villagers themselves and guests of the Yakut village like to take photos with the manure snake.
Last year it was a dragon made from cow manure.
Why not, actually?
