Taking her cues from the historical reference to police officers as Coppers, Beverly Jean Schaaf has created a unique pig. Copper mesh was wrapped around the entire pig, and held in place with bondo. Black and white gesso – two colors historically associated with police officers -- was applied to create the unique look. Beverly then capped it off with a flashing “Bubble light.”.
