Your parents have probably warned you against playing with your food, but Dominic Episcopo's 'Meat America' collection makes it look like the only sensible thing to do with what's on your plate.

Based in Philadelphia with over 20 years of experience as a photographer, Episcopo captures meats shaped from figures like Abraham Lincoln and Elvis to adorable breakfast creations and anatomically-correct looking hearts. More than just a display of different slabs of pork and beef, Meat America is a celebration of the nation's favorite meal-time ingredient. Described as "an eye-opening and artery-closing tour of America’s spirit of entrepreneurship, rebellion and positivity," on the project's Facebook page, the collection defines the culture of the country better than words ever could.
