You can tell the Holy Week is fast approaching since that is when a hotel will display a "6-foot tall anatomically correct sculpture of Jesus in milk chocolate." Artist Cosimo Cavallaro titles his work “My Sweet Lord.” Well I guess his mother is the Immaculate Confection.
Of course Catholic League president Bill Donohue is on the case.
An article that contains a picture of the statue calls it "Jesus, The 485,460-Calorie Messiah." If the statue was in a more fitting medium than milk chocolate it wouldn’t be that bad since showing Jesus nude has certainly been done throughout history at time in Catholic art. Though it is pretty hard to take seriously an artist who is best remembered for covering a New York City hotel room in melted cheese in 1999.
Update: Display now cancelled.
