Not so long ago we featured a special edition, champagne-infused Valentine's Day Marmite. Besides delighting and disgusting many people, the spread also inspired one artist to create a sculpture made entirely of Marmite.

It's a remake of "The Kiss" by Rodin and was created by sculptor Jeremy Fattorini coated in the bitter "I Love You" Champagne Marmite. The 38 year old from Guernsey used 420 jars of the limited edition spread and spent almost three weeks creating the 7 foot replica which was unveiled on February 13, 2008 at London's Greenwich Park.

"It will be interesting to see if this gains more popularity than the statue at St Pancras," Fattorini said. "I'm sure that Marmite will once again polarize the nation â€" you'll either love it or hate it. It's a good thing I like the stuff, as I was licking my fingers as I created it!"
