Fake Bacons

As another part of this project I plan on regularly posting poignant questions about bacon here for further discussion.  Please engage in discussion in the 'comments' section.  The first question for your consideration is:

How do you feel about fake bacons?  There are a number of different soy-based bacons on the market along with the ubiquitous turkey bacon.  I have even recently come by bison bacon.  How do you feel about these bacon imposters?

The Holy Cross of Bacon

As my first part of this art project I made the above pictured "Holy Cross of Bacon".  I think it adequately reflects my opinion of bacon.  It's a 8inX6in block of urban-harvested sycamore finished with danish oil and adorned with bacon.  If anyone knows how to preserve bacon for the ages please do tell, my attempts to coat it in polyurethane were less than successful.

I've also made a series of 24 Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) featuring the Holy Cross of Bacon.  I'll be sending those out to some lucky people soon.
