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.
