Besides a tale of delicious chocolate and elegant sculpture, we convey a message that feels as uncomfortable as it does pressing.
The penguin before you, hasn’t simply buckled a water bottle round its waist. It’s not about some artist’s fantasy or a sly wink from the chocolate confectioner. Rather it symbolizes the survival of our planet.
The animals created by artist William Sweetlove (born in 1949, Ostend) are at the ready to provision the world with drinking-water. Water which – due to global warming – is becoming ever scarcer or which – at times – flows copiously inland. This quirky work of art is a wake-up call: a warning about the consequences of global warming, the loss of biodiversity and our insatiable consumption habits. The iconic statuettes of William Sweetlove are food for thought, wherever they are exhibited. From a sultry Beverly Hills to the natural silence of the South Pole. And now also, therefore, in your personal living environment, with the ‘Barry Callebaut’ chocolate of Stephan Destrooper as a delicious medium of communication and protected by an artistic packaging by Gruyaert. Savour this delicious, artistic, 100% Belgian story!
