Chocolate Jesus

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)

According to yumsugar, the sculpture goes on display April 1st (no this isn’t a joke) at the Lab gallery in the Roger Smith Hotel in New York.

    Why do these Assholes think that’s what constitutes “ART” It’s just another publicity stunt..Nail a turd on a sheet of plywood and try to convince “The Elite” that they’ve created the latest masterpiece!My background is one of 50 years of professional work,and this crap makes me ashamed to even have the gall to list it as”ART””

    Normally I’d totally agree with you, but the fact that that’s a carved life-like statue is pretty impressive in my opinion.

    This is an insult to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords of the universe, who now is seated at the right hand of God Almighty, not naked, but in the robes of royalty.

    Cavallaro is a sham; nothing more than
    a carnival huckster.

  7. cincodemayo1 on

    Yeah, appears that way, but the chocolate is still pretty impressive. Some of his other work, not so much.

    The “Artist” considers himself as a prophet, he considers himself to be like Jesus and better than Jesus, ah yes, in his mind he is one of many new messiahs of the 21st century, the age of free thought, and hyperevolution. An edible God, what a novel idea!!! Jesus said to eat his body and drink his blood. The artist feels he is outwitting Jesus by mocking him by means of Jesus’ own words. This work is comparable to a mother who says “pick up your things” meaning for the child to clean his room. The child (artist) cleverly picks up each item in the room only to place it right back where he had found it. The child feels he’s proved himself superior in wit and will to the mother. However, when the child recieves will well deserved punishment for the act of defiance he will no linger think himself so clever!

    The worst part is that on a deeper level the artist feels he is the one truly fullfilling the word of Jesus by ultimately superseding him.

    Just another clever trick of luciferian ideology…
    believing “God is Satan, Satan is God”

    i’ve read this work of ‘art’ is anatomically correct. but if you look closely, it, in fact, is NOT.

    Jesus was an uncircumsised Jew!

    idiot artiste!

  10. loves Jesus on

    I honestly feel that this is totally wrong, unreasonable, and ridiculous.It’s like poking fun at Jesus. It’s wrong!

    This is an utter disgrace,it shows how much the world needs Jesus my one true lord.When you die and satnd before almighty God where will you go?I have Jesus living inside me so i believe I will be going to heaven have you asked Jesus into your life,about time you should?

    And when eight days were completed for the circumcision of the Child, His name was called Jesus, the name given by the angel before He was conceived in the womb. (Luke 2:21)

    If you insist on being a bible thumper, don’t be a retarded bible thumper. Their is nothing more annoying then someone who preaches something that they are too lazy to actually research.

  13. Doogiebob on

    I’m going to have to agree with Couch on this one. Retarded Bible Thumpers suck. I myself try to be an informed Bible thumper.
    About the artwork…
    As a Christian and an artist, I think it’s ridiculus. An artwork must have some expression or purpose behind it. What is the artist saying here? It sounds like he is saying, “I can’t make a name for myself without using shock value or being extremely eccentric.”
    That’s sad.

    art is the exploration of ideas, concepts, its about interacting with the viewer, and inviting them to participate to some degree in interpreting the message of the work.

    Why dont you offended just chill out? Why are some ideas so threatening to some people? It’s only an idea.

  15. sensibility on

    the nutrition facts on the side of the picture i find is the only thing that could be disrespectful or offensive. the sculpture itself is great, it is a very vivid and well put together sculpture of jesus. See it for the art people, not the fact that its made of chocolate. The chocolate part just makes it that much more unique and creative. If the artist meant disrespect, i dont think he would have spent the many hours creating this piece of art. See it for what it is, and be proud of your savior in all forms, if thats what you beleive in.

    i will end all of your lives for creating a sin against god… except for jacob since he has done nothing wrong.

    Do not take God as a joke. This is all I have to say. When you take him as a joke you will get your price back. That is guaranted. God is almighty and deserves more respect.

  22. foxy on

    No one really knows how God looks like. No one can can really say that is him becuase we dont know his color we dont know anything of his psysical form but what we do know is that he is a God of love who gave it all for our sins and this is how man pay him back. At the end of judgement we will really know how he looks like.

  23. joe on

    To all such lowly souls God gives grace and glory (Psa_84:11). With both hands He will give and give again. Grace is the bud of which Glory is the flower. If God has given the one, He will not withhold the other from. (Psa_84:12).
    If anything is withheld from us, we may be sure that it is not absolutely for our good. No good thing will the Father withhold; but He will not give us scorpions, however beautiful their appearance; nor stones, though painted to resemble bread.
    Your Father or Mother Or Your Loved ones might not forgive … But your Creator Will !!!
