Modeled after the British crown jewels, this piece responds to Carol J. Adams' book The Sexual Politics of Meat, extending her work to consider the intersections of masculine notions of American identity, meat-consumption, Henry VIII, and a 2004 article in Men's Health magazine encouraging American men to eat more beef.

This work is accompanied by an essay, "Burger King," in the book The Art of the Animal: 14 Women Artists Explore The Sexual Politics of Meat (Lantern Books, 2015).
