Cossimo Cavallaro is an artist; a very unique artist who uses occasionally uses edible objects in his work. For example, he once repainted a New York hotel room in melted mozzarella cheese and he’s covered a bed in processed ham. This time it’s chocolate.
Man cannot live on bread alone, but if he were to consume Cosimo Cavallaro’s newest creation he could live off of Jesus — for approximately eight months. An oddball artist known for his “eclectic” forms of expression, Cavallaro’s latest contribution to culture is a six-foot tall, anatomically-correct milk-chocolate sculpture of Jesus Christ. His confectionary Christ is made with more than 200 pounds of chocolate, containing approximately 480,000 calories. (The artistic endeavor titled, “My Sweet Lord,” can also give you 3,240 percent of the Vitamin A you need each day.) (Esquire)
