Bacon Narcissus

We watch in reverence, as Narcissus is turned to an assemblage of marbled lean back

A sculpture depicting a figure, not unlike Caravaggio's Narcissus, staring fixedly into a mirrored pool.

Curiously, the features of the youth, upon closer inspection, are wrought in slices of bacon, mirroring the works of Francis Bacon, in that they're all smeared about and that.

The youth has the words "Human Bacon" stamped into his back, to further belabour the derivative nature of the work.

Also, bacon!

       Plastinated flesh? We could get Gunther von Hagens in on the scheme. Alternately, bacon, and some flies.

       Soundtrack provided by The Cure, presumably...

       At the genesis of the idea...we did consider contacting Meatloaf, but they gave us the cold shoulder.

       Very ill-advised … in fact, it's hard to envisage anything rasher …

       This is So not kosher.   

       That's no reason to pan the idea ...
