In true pop art craze, a 2m high monolith made of gingerbread mysteriously appeared on the top of a San Francisco hill on Christmas Day and collapsed the next day.

The three-sided tower, joined by frosting and decorated with a few gum drops, delighted the city on Friday when word spread about its existence.

During her morning run, Ananda Sharma told KQED-FM He went up to Corona Heights Park to watch the sunrise when he saw what he thought was a large pole.

He said he smelled the scent of gingerbread before he realized what it was.

“It made me smile. I wonder who did it and when they put it there,” he said.

People walked to the park throughout the day, even when a light rain fell on the ephemeral edible art object. In a video posted online, someone took a bite of gingerbread.

Phil Ginsburg, head of the city’s Parks and Recreation Department, told KQED that the site “looks like a great place to bake” and confirmed that his staff will not remove the monument “until the cookie falls apart.”

It became a topic of fascination around the world as it evoked the movie “2001: A Space Odyssey” and sparked speculation about its otherworldly origins.

The still anonymous creator of the Utah monument did not obtain permission to plant the hollow stainless steel object on public land.

A similar metal structure was found and quickly disappeared on a hill in northern Romania.

Days later, another monolith was discovered at the pinnacle of a trail in Atascadero, California, but was later dismantled by a group of youths, city officials said.
