Chocolate Jesus

This piece of art may be 6 years old now but I am of the opinion great art gets better with age…

It was in 2007 that artist Cosimo Cavallaro created this 6ft tall anatomically correct life sized chocolate sculpt of Jesus – containing enough chocolate for him to live off for approximately eight months. More than 200 pounds of chocolate, containing approximately 480,000 calories, were used; whatever you views are of the subject matter you have to admire the structures in place which kept this piece together in the crucifix position. The name of the piece “My Sweet Lord” (of course).

Of course very predictably people with nothing better to do with their time got all hot under the collar and attacked the artist for insulting someone who may not have even existed in the first place…

Oh and there is also this – Chocolate Jesus by Tom Waits
