Roxy Paine is an American artist who has designed a precisely accurate art installation made entirely out of wood. His work entitled Carcass, is a true to life fast food restaurant.

Paine used maple and birch wood to make this installation, and his attention to detail in the kitchen is staggering. Paine sculpted everything, from wire casings on the deep fryer to the soft serve ice cream machines to coffee pots. Everything about this installation looks real, but the restaurant is devoid of any names, logos or food. All that remains is a shell of a fast food joint with nothing inside, an empty carcass.

Since 1989, Paine has had his work exhibited in museums around the world, from San Francisco to Ottawa and even Jerusalem.
