Life imitates art: Meret Oppenheim's iconic 1936 fur teacup reincarnated as sheep's milk cheese

You may recall that on the morning of Friday, November 8, 2013, I featured a sheep's milk cheese from France that comes wrapped in the wool of the sheep from whose milk it was made (below).

About 45 minutes after that post appeared, it occurred to me that Meret Oppenheim's iconic 1936 sculpture, entitled "Object," (top), uncannily foreshadowed this cheese as presented in late 2013.

The sculpture is in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City; you can buy a half-pound piece of cheese for $25.95 here.
