Chocolate Saints . . . Sweet Jesus

I ran across a month-old story in the Christian Post today alerting me to a new display of Cosimo Cavallaro‘s Chocolate Jesus. This show includes eight saints and a recast of the Christ figure (apparently mice destroyed the first one). The Catholic League isn’t protesting this show since the time is less conspicuous and the display isn’t in a ground-floor window. See photos via this link; I’d post the photo here, but the only images of this new show I can find are on an uptight website run by Getty Images. The images on Cavallaro’s website are all presented using Flash, a pet peeve of mine. 


About pcNielsen
Paul Nielsen founded The Aesthetic Elevator late in 2005. He owns a piece of paper, located somewhere in his house (not on the wall), stating that he earned a B.F.A. from the University of Nebraska around about 2001. While there, he studied studied architecture, graphic design and ceramics, graduating with a degree in studio art. Paul presently serves as communications manager for a small non-profit doing their print design and marketing. He spends as much time sculpting in his studio as possible — which is not nearly enough.
