When Pigs Fly
Working together, the artists started from the phrase "When pigs fly" to create this jewel-encrusted flying pig. It was executed by applying thousands of tiny hand-placed beads and hand blown glass rondelles from head to hoof. An ornate pair of wings, and gold leaf further highlight the pig.
