Acrylic on terra-cotta pigs, Wood panel
The little pig figurines are symbolic of all people.
The bright colors and tiny patterns on them represent the many
different kinds of people in NYC. For example, the pigs with a heart
marking represent people in love. The pigs with a bandage represent a
wounded or hurt person. Pigs with stars represent the starry-eyed
people with big dreams. The bright colors have been purposely used to
create a light New York City vibe.
Each pig figurine measures 0.5" x 1" x 0.5".
All of the pigs are made out of Terra-Cotta, while some of them are painted with acrylic.
Each pig is handmade, a mold was not used. The frame is ready to hang on a wall.
