A US company specialising in bacon products recently commissioned an artist to make a bust of actor Kevin Bacon …made out of bacon.
Artist Mike Lahue carved a styrofoam bust of the actor and then used bacon bits covered by glue and several coats of lacquer as soft, cooked bacon would rot too easily.
The final result is called ‘Bacon Kevin Bacon’ and is being auctioned on eBay in support a nonprofit organization which helps families cope with cancer.
At the moment the current bid is $353.00.
