Cheese carving at the state fair

INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - If you've already been to the Indiana State Fair this year, maybe you've seen this unique demonstration: it's the annual cheese carving.

These dairy artists use 930 pounds of cheese to create masterpieces.

This year's theme is Great "Mooments" in History.

From the first milk barn at the fair to Indy 500 winners drenching themselves in milk, there's plenty of history.

These carvers don't curdle or melt under the pressure.

"We purposefully sculpt live so you the fairgoer can watch the progress and they'll come back many times to check our progress and when you see the finished project all this will be added to," said artist Sarah Kaufmann.

You can watch the cheese artists working again on Thursday. They unveil the finished product on Friday!
