Two chocolate Grace Jones heads survive melting pot at Thorntons (with video)
SHE'S starred as a larger-than-life Bond girl and in her own weird and wonderful music videos.
But this is the latest bizarre image of singer Grace Jones – grabbing a chocolate replica of her own head in a Derbyshire factory.
Life-size replicas of her body parts were produced by Somercotes-based Thorntons as artwork for the cover of her new album.
The sleeve art for the Jamaican former model's album will feature images of her lifting chocolate legs, arms and heads off the factory's production line.

But despite looking delicious, the body parts were inedible – after being sprayed with chemicals to make them look glossy during the shoot.
Only Grace and Jonathan Ross, whose show she appeared on last Friday, know how good they taste after being sent two special, edible versions.
The singer travelled to Thorntons earlier this month for the photoshoot.
A spokeswoman for Thorntons said the factory had kept a couple of heads as souvenirs and others had been given to people involved in the shoot.
She said: "The heads were actually really heavy and Grace had difficulty holding them during some of the shots.
"It was hard work but a lot of fun and Grace just had the best time.
"The factory has a very down-to-earth vibe and, when Grace walked in, everyone was saying 'ey up ducky' to her!
"She didn't understand what they meant and asked why everyone was calling her a duck.
"She's got a reputation as a bit of diva but she spent loads of time chatting to the factory workers. She couldn't believe how nice everyone was."
Moulds of Grace's body were taken in London and then sent to Somercotes to be filled with chocolate.
Staff created eight heads, ten legs and ten arms for the shoot, which involved 15 crew members and took place earlier this month.
On Wednesday, she appeared on Jools Holland Later Live and spoke about how to achieve success.
She said: "Do what you do, stick to what you do no matter what. Keep your dreams as they focus your reality and do it, don't talk about it."
Grace shot to fame in the 1970s when she was photographed by Andy Warhol.
She had hits in the 1980s with songs such as Private Life, Pull Up To The Bumper and Slave To The Rhythm.
In 1981, the star famously slapped chat show host Russell Harty across the face live on air, before appearing as May Day in Bond film A View To A Kill four years later.
Hurricane, Grace's first album for 20 years, will be released on Monday.
