I created this work at a time when "Mad cow" disease (an infectious disease caused by prions that affect the brains of cattle) was very much in the news. If humans eat diseased tissue from cattle, they may develop the human form of mad cow disease known as variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. The horror of this fatal illness hides behind the graphic elegance of the marbled meat from a local butcher shop.
