Chocolate "LOVE"

I couldn't resist taking a shot of this white chocolate LOVE that has appeared in a local chocolate shop's window. Based on the image designed by American Pop artist Robert Indiana in 1964 as a Christmas card for the MOMA, it is a very familiar design and has been reproduced in many forms - not sure how many have been chocolate though. I didn't notice the reflection of the workers on the roof across the road until I opened this on the computer.
Happy St Valentine's Day everyone!

I LOVE white chocolate Pat, could have quite the feast on these big letters. Because I've posted about a couple of exhibitions on loan from MoMA, I recognized the design straight off, then my next thought was...I wish!!

That is cool. In white chocolate! Back many years ago, there was a huge iron sculpture of this on the Boston City Hall Plaza, and there is a photograph floating around of a tall guy who climbed up on it with his sweetie. I think the statute of limitations has expired.

I've been to his studio in Maine. Strange stuff! Interesting stuff! Hey, it's Indiana.

It's made of chocolate? That would take some chomping!
