An ice-cream lolly shaped two metres tall artwork with pleasurable items on top coming out of it. Sprinkled with a selection of self-created chocolate handbags, shoes, crowns, tiaras, a mask and pearl chains were added to the masterpiece and covered in gold at the end.
The artwork was well secured, in a massive safe that was around 8.2x8.2 ft in size and guarded by two security guards around the clock. At the opening ceremony for the press, it was staged with a light and sound show, then slowly opened and the art object released to public eyes.
