Rain City Pig - Tales of the City
This pig represents Seattle as a place defined by water - the lakes, the Sound, the rain. The pig's body is painted like water and covered with colorful Asian-style umbrellas in a nod to Seattle's Pacific Rim ties. "Word drops" splash over the pig, their concentric rings forming pig outtakes: fun facts and stories about the Seattle area including one about a famous Northwest pig.
