Food so good it eats itself

These photos remind me of a whole subgenre of Australian butcher’s shop art, the kind where a bull in a blue and white striped apron is depicted stropping a boning knife with a mercilessly amiable expression on its face. I remember being fascinated as a child by a smallgoods ad showing a pig continuing to frolic cheerfully even as its back was separating into slices of devon, somewhere near where I grew up, probably in Granville.
