This design is fun and original, like the artist. The pig was covered in black and white Polaroid images of a real pig in similar scale from nose to tail. The Polaroid images replicate the parts of the fiberglass pig, creating a three-dimensional collage. The pig was then painted in pink pearl automotive paint.
