Joe Arpaio Re-created in Bacon

Laura Hahnefeld found some more bacon art, and posted this on Phoenix New Times Blogs.

After ooh-ing and ahh-ing over Van Gogh’s Starry Night re-created in bacon, we at Chow Bella couldn’t help be inspired to create our own meat candy concoction of a Phoenix figurehead: Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.


Using cooked, pre-cooked, and uncooked varieties of bacon, a stable of sharp instruments,and a photo of “Joe,” the bacon enthusiasts of Chow Bella got to the greasy work of assemblage, using layering techniques to first create the shape of the face, then tackling the porky parts like Joe’s nose and chin.
