No, not bread. No, not for frying.
My younger daughter Katie (12) had to do a project on a Greek god. She chose Pan. You know… famous for his flute. Also where we get words like pan and panic, and the prefix pan as in pan-dimentional. It all comes from Pan. Or, as my daughter now refers to him, “that horny little goat-man.”
Anyway, she made a diorama. Included were a non-functional pan flute we made from bamboo (not pictured, but looks great, and she had a great time using the power saw), a representation of Pan himself made from a Ken doll and “craft fur” and -made horns and a tail (also not pictured), Ken/Pan got his very own -made pan flute (pictured below), and also a - made gold Pantikapion coin (also pictured below)!
Miniature pan flute for miniature Pan to hold. It’s about 1" x 1".

Far from perfect. I really wanted to use acrylic, but I tried medium acrylic and it just couldn’t handle the double-sided engrave… ate right through it when I flipped it. Turns out I’m out of thick acrylic, so I just said screw it, and used thick draftboard. I’d say the result is… adequate. Especially considering we did it all in 3 hours.
