Day of the Dead

As part of The British Museum's Day of the Dead celebrations, AVM Curiosities presented an exclusive sugar sculpture shrine; embellished with crystallised roses, chocolate Mexican Milagros and edible iconography. 

Alongside AVM's bespoke creations, the display included chocolate skulls by Conjurer’s Kitchen and wallpaper by Anatomy Boutique. Preserved in sugar and enrobed in chocolate, this deliciously macabre confection was a testament to the transience of its materials - and a celebration of the subjects of life, death and time.
