Blessed Be Thy Chocolate

Quick, what comes to mind when you think Easter? I bet some of you said Chocolate Bunnies and some of you probably said Jesus, but did any of you say Chocolate Jesus??

Artist Cosimo Cavallaro has created a confectionary Christ made from more than 200 pounds of chocolate (entitled "My Sweet Lord"). The folks at Esquire have even broken down the nutrition facts for the anatomically correct chocolate Jesus. The sculpture will be revealed to the public on April 1st (which, by the way, made me think it was a joke when I first read it) at the Lab gallery in the Roger Smith Hotel in New York. The creative director of the gallery, Matt Semler, says, "The sign of any great artist is how their work affects the observer."

So how are you affected by it?

Update: Due to the large number of protests, it looks like the Chocolate Jesus won't be shown afterall.

Well... maybe this settles the whole race argument. Jesus was milk chocolate.

... Really puts new meaning into the whole "Body of Christ" deal doesn't it? I'm pretty sure I couldn't put any bit of Jesus in my mouth. Bazaar...

Good call, Buzz Sugar!! I loves me some chocolate, but I don't want to be the girl that ate Jesus' ass. Or any other naughty bit. "Save the makeup, save the world..."

BellaCalla: for some reason your comment about Jesus' weenie made me laugh. I am not sure if that is blasphemous or not, but in all actuality, He did have one. As for the whole sculpture thing, I just think it is art, but I surely would not eat it. (Especially the weenie part).

Unpleasant. Disturbingly anatomically correct. Quite possibly tasty.
