With the opening of Paris’s Salon du Chocolat less than a month away, Belgian chocolatier Leonidas has revealed the photos of an impressive chocolate sculpture.
The chocolate sculpture will be the biggest yet for Leonidas. The chocolatier has already pursued similar artistic endeavors, albeit on a slightly smaller scale, such as replicas of the French capital’s Opera Garnier and Eiffel tower landmarks.
The theme for the 2012 edition of the Salon du Chocolat, “New Worlds”, inspired chocolate artist Jean-Luc Decluzeau to work on a sculpture of the Aztec god of chocolate, Quetzalcoatl, that will stand three meters high (10 ft).
The Salon du Chocolat will be held at the Porte de Versailles, in Paris, from October 31 to November 4.
