Erfurt, Germany, October 19, 2008--A lizard sculpture made of play dough and sugar eyes chefs and food at the 23rd International Competition of Culinary Art, also known as the Culinary Olympics.

About 1,600 chefs, pastry chefs, and their support teams from more than 50 nations are gathered to display their culinary skill. Many chefs consider the culinary competition the most prestigious in the world. The national team of the United Arab Emirates made the lizard.
