    Chocolate Jesus



    Gallery Cancels Exhibit Featuring Chocolate Jesus Sculpture

    March 30, 2007

    A Midtown gallery announced today that it has cancelled an exhibit featuring a life-size sculpture of Jesus crafted entirely out of chocolate that was to be displayed during Holy Week.

    The anatomically correct sculpture prompted protests from religious groups, including Edward Cardinal Egan, who dubbed the display "a scandalous carving."

    In a statement released earlier today, Egan said, "What the Roger Smith Hotel would hope to achieve by this sickening display, no one seems to know. The Catholic community is alerted to this offense of our faith and sensitivities. This is something we will not forget."

    Manhattan artist Cosimo Cavallaro calls his sculpture of Jesus on the cross - "My Sweet Lord."

    The sculpture has been called the "485,000 calorie Messiah,” but Catholic groups called it a cheap publicity stunt that is offensive to millions of people.

    "Would they do similar things to other groups? I doubt it,” said Kiera McCaffrey of the Catholic League. “Would they show a statue of Mohammed naked during Ramadan? I don't think so. But yet they have no problem doing this to Christians.”

    The gallery says the sculpture was never intended to offend anyone.

    "It's not coming from a place to disrespect; it's not the intention of what is happening here with this exhibition,” said Matt Semler of the Lab Gallery. “It's an expression. It’s a consideration. I think it's a meditation on the holiday."

    The chocolate Jesus was scheduled to be on display starting Monday at the Lab Gallery at the Roger Smith Hotel.

    Cavallaro is said to be disappointed by the cancellation.
