It is known that artists see the world differently than ordinary people. You can make sure of this once again by looking at the works of Perm sculptor Sergey Pakhomov, who proudly calls himself a "pasta artist". The last masterpiece of the talented Permian was the macaroni interpretation of the ancient Indian love treatise "Kama Sutra". The author called his creation PastaSutra and devoted the acute topic of prohibitions on Facebook. Commenting on the new creation, Pakhomov states that he created it to attract the attention of the masses to the unpredictable censorship of the most popular social network on the planet.
In an interview with the media, the pasta sculptor said that his highly social flour sculptures are a way to troll Facebook moderators who try on the label "porn" to any image.
The work "Prelude"
Pakhomov says that in some cases, even paintings by Rubens and Italian masters of the Renaissance become victims of censorship.

Having made a batch of figures depicting poses from the "Kama Sutra", the Perm artist waited for the removal of the photo and even a ban, but, as it turned out, he achieved the opposite effect. Not only did the moderators not touch the photo of "pasta sex", on the contrary, the figures from the dough aroused great interest in the art world, and their author was invited to demonstrate his work at the Museum of Eroticism in Yekaterinburg. Now the museum's exposition presents 10 figurines depicting the most popular sexual poses.

Describing the work on the unusual series, Pakhomov said that he did not delve into the content of the erotic treatise and used more intuition and experience than illustrations and descriptions. The artist also says that pasta is an ideal material for erotic sculptures, as they have a suitable shape. Sergey claims that the pasta itself helped him work by giving him fresh ideas.
