A critical interpretation of the bust of King Leopold II Coburg, made of Belgian chocolate. Edible and monstrous sculpture speaks of the past of its substance – the shameful, bitter history of the Belgian Congo colonization and the brutal genocide committed by Leopold II on this territory which for over half a century was his private property.
