Butter lamb

A butter lamb. The butter lamb, also known as a buttered lamb, is a traditional butter sculpture accompanying the Easter meal for many Russian, Slovenian, Polish Catholics.[1] Butter is shaped into a lamb either by hand or in a lamb-shaped mould.[2] It is also sold at delis, Polish specialty markets, and some general grocery stores at Easter time. The butter lamb is a particular tradition in Buffalo, New York's Broadway Market, in which the annual introduction of the butter lamb is a symbol of spring.[3][4]

Frequently the eyes are represented by peppercorns and a white banner with a red cross on a toothpick is placed on its back.

Its name in Polish is baranek wielkanocny. Its name in Russian is barashek iz masla ( ).[5] A variant is the sugar lamb.[1]
