    A large exhibition featuring a giant chocolate replica of the Great Wall of China, a replica of terracotta warriors, chocolate clothes and a car opened in Beijing on Friday.

    Tons of chocolate, caramel and candies were used to create World Chocolate Wonderland, organizers said.

    Apart from the life-size replica of 500 Terracotta Army and a 12-meter replica of the Great Wall, the exhibition boasts chocolate clothes, shoes and bags of leading brands, chocolate flowers, chinaware, and even a BMW car that took some 2 tons of chocolate to be made.

    Organizers said the exhibition's goal is to allow visitors "to learn about the history of chocolate and its place in various cultures around the world."

    The exhibition, which opened at Beijing's National Stadium that hosted the Olympics last year, will run until April, when it becomes warmer. It is not clear what will happen with the exhibits then.
