Kira Sarakosti, her Greek name, is a small figure baked of bread dough which features something really unusual: she has seven legs and her hands are folded as if in prayer. Lady Lent’s seven legs each represent one week of the fasting period. There is a cross on her forehead, and she has no mouth, indicating that she can’t eat because she is fasting.
