Image Credit: J&D FoodsFall 2010 has brought forth an interesting trend where celebrities, fashion, and art all meat up. Weeks after Lady Gaga donned an all raw meat ensemble at the MTV VMAs, the latest celebrity to turn to protein is, fittingly enough, Kevin Bacon. A charity auction on eBay — all proceeds are going to Ashley’s Team, a not-for-profit organization with the mission to bring joy to childhood cancer patients — is offering a life-size bust of Kevin Bacon that has been constructed entirely out of (yep, you guessed it) bacon.
The 14-inch tall Bacon Kevin Bacon bust appears to be fashioned out of bacon bits, and its swoopy red hair makes him look more like Conan O’Brien than Kevin Bacon. Of course, the sculpture is not edible, but why would you want to eat your art? (Gaga’s dress, however, is being turned into jerky.) There are seven days left in the eBay auction — bids have already reached $510 — so if you are willing to pony up a minimum of $520, you can own this one-of-a-kind sculpture, much to the envy of all your friends.
What’s next? Jon Hamm in a Don Draper-esque suit made entirely out of ham? A sculpture of Meatloaf made out of meatloaf?
