Finger Lickin’ Peeps

Finger Lickin' Peeps

This is Easter weekend, when Christians across the United States celebrate with reverent displays of synthetic marshmallow animals. The indegestible items, apparently constructed of latex foam, are dyed bright pastel colors as a warning against ingestion.

Displays and dioramas of seasonal scenes are crafted as acts of devotion, in fulfilment of vows, and as objects of veneration. Here are links to a few for your holiday contemplation:
