Cosimo Cavallaro Makes the Blessed Saints Above More Delicious Than Ever

Sure, Cosimo Cavallaro’s chocolate Jesus has garnered all kinds of buzz, but what about his chocolaty saints? Cavallaro’s solo show at the Proposition Gallery, now up through November 24 — and originally slated to run in April of this year, but dismounted due to massive criticism — features his cocoa shepherd surrounded by these delectable mini saints. We thought Saint Fermin here might make a good post-Halloween treat. —Rachel Wolff
