Oregon artist Bijijoo has been painting pictures of U.S. presidents holding a giant, pink piece of ham since 2006. The forty-three portraits are composed of oil painted on panel, and are varnished, matted, and framed in handmade wooden frames. The portraits serve to commemorate the personalities, historical narratives, and legacies of the presidents. Such a presidential tableau may spark a sense of curiosity and patriotism in even the most hardened of hearts.
