Day 96 (CS Day 19) - Irish Bog Butter

"Scan a newspaper or news site and make something inspired by today's headlines"

So, this NPR article, published June 16th, informed me that in a bog in Ireland, 
a huge lump of 2,000 year-old intact butter was found.

It's described as smelling like old cheese and weighs nearly 22 lbs (10 kg as BBC points out).

My ink drawing features the butter, freshly pulled from the bog with stoneflies buzzing past. Stoneflies, not because they're attracted to butter, but because I needed an insect and they're a likely candidate for being found in a bog. AND they exist in Ireland!
