If you’re still wondering what to get your loved ones for the holidays, may I suggest consulting a tried and true Dallas institution, the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book. For $110,000 you can buy a “His and Hers Double Portrait in Chocolate” by Vik Muniz. The perfect gift for the art lover in your life.

From the catalogue:
Maybe he sent bonbons after the first date. Certainly, untold chocolate has been exchanged over the years. To celebrate that entertaining, exasperating, enduring thing you call love, try our His & Hers portrait by Vik Muniz.

The brilliant Brazilian lives and works in New York, crafting internationally famous art out of literally anything: caviar, dirt, diamonds, toys even! Here, he will capture your likenesses in a double helping of Bosco® chocolate syrup. You come away with a framed 60″ x 48″ museum-quality photographic work of art, a limited edition of one, thank you.

To grow the good karma you’ve started, Vik is donating his proceeds to Centro Espacial Rio de Janeiro, the charity he created to bring social and art projects to life for underprivileged young people in Brazil.

As for us, earlier this week, we left the 14 inches of snow on the ground back in New England and flew down to Dallas to celebrate Christmas with family.
