Ripley’s! Acquires Chocolate M&M Portrait Of Eminem

Ripley’s Believe It or Not! has acquired a portrait of rapper Eminem made completely out of M&M chocolate candies.

 

Enrique Ramos, who lives in Orlando, Florida and Mexico, created the portrait of Eminem using more than 1,000 individual M&M’s.

 

Ramos used over 8 pounds of chocolate to create a portrait of the chart-topping rapper, born Marshall Mathers.

 

The high calorie portrait – which measures at 40 inches x 30 inches – will hang in the halls of one of Ripley’s museums.

 

“Our customers have a pretty good eye for art. They won’t be disappointed by Eminem in M&M’s,” said Tim O’Brien, VP of Communications for Ripley’s Believe It or Not! “This thing looks good enough to eat.”

 

Ramos has also crafted other unusual works of art, including a replicate portrait of by Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, which he painted on the back of a cockroach.

 

Eminem’s M&M portrait will hang along side other oddities in the Ripley’s musuem, including a picture of Princess Diana made from lint, The Supper in burnt toast and Michael Jackson, done completely in gumballs.
