MEAT THE BIG YIN...
Quite what Billy Connolly will think of this meaty likeness remains to be seen

So quite what Billy Connolly will think of this meaty likeness remains to be seen.
WITH a haggis face and tartan jacket carved from layers of bacon, it hardly seems the most fitting tribute to a vegetarian.
The portrait of the Scottish comedian was created by photographer Carl Warner, who uses everyday foodstuffs to generate his artwork.
His ‘Salvador Deli’ masterpieces can take up to two days to form as he carefully layers together fruit and vegetables, cheese, bread, meats and fish.
He used Scottish ingredients to make the edible tribute for the Big Yin’s 68th birthday on November 24.
Carl, who is based in London, said: “Although I know he is a vegetarian, haggis was a ‘must-have’ ingredient, plus it has the right colour and texture for skin tones.”
