The giant potato monument in Cyprus gets its Christmas make over.

Christmas Potato

Cypriot potatoes are famous, especially those grown in the area of Famagusta.

The community council of Xylofagos decided to place at the entrance of the village on the Larnaca - Ayia Napa highway a huge monument to "honour" the local product.

The project was discussed on social media as many deemed it to be a fake, they were unable to believe in the design and considered it to be in bad taste.
