Death and Chocolate

A brave and subversive effort from Chocolat Menier, placing their product in the sombre surroundings of Père-Lachaise Cemetery alongside the sententious and lugubrious Monument aux Morts by Albert Bartholomé (1848–1928). The hand carved emblems of bereavement and human wretchedness rest uneasily in the company of the tempting charms of Chocolat Menier. The ensemble serves as a reminder that in the midst of death we are in chocolate.

Dear Mister Beard,

I am interested by the image of Chocolats Menier with the Bartholomé monument.

Could you contact me at henrique.simoes[at] if you're the owner of this image, please?

Thank you in advance,
