A STUNNING mosaic mapping the history of chocolate now takes pride of place in a Weston estate.

Mural painted by Lee Kirby at  Chocolate garden , Longdale Avenue, Bournville.

The art work covers 68 square metres of wall surrounding the Bournville’s new Chocolate Garden.

Artist Lee Kirby from Flipt Murals was chosen by members of the community after showcasing his work in the For All Healthy Living Centre last year.

The mosaic is created through spray paints and depicts the historical journey of chocolate from Aztec and Inca times to the chocolate we know today.
