A breathtaking glass mosaic, each piece is hand cut and integrated into the painted composition. This pig is visual and tactile and each piece is shaped to fit into the whole collage of glass. The inspiration for this pig comes from the artist's grandmother, the first woman to fly with the Blue Angels and sports aviation gear in tribute. The boxing gloves represent and reflect strength and confidence.
