This little pig is very piggy: Proportions, details – like his snout, ears and tail – and even the ruddy hue of the stone, are all porcine-true.
One exception? His turquoise eyes. These bright blue accents point up the rosy dolomite stone, with a nicely vivid contrast.
Carved with care for the beauty of the stone, as well as the realism of the subject, this fetish is polished to a touchable finish.
With his rounded and slightly concave form, he would make a fine worry-bead, too; hard to stop caressing him.
For a pig collector, a pig owner, or a pig-farmer, this little pig is a wonderful companion/guardian.
