Yesterday, at the Pigs on Parade auction we purchased a pig. If you’ve spent any time around downtown Seattle you’ve probably seen one of these illustrious beasts hanging around looking porcine. If you haven’t spent any time around downtown Seattle, suffice it to say that the they are large (4-foot x 5-foot) fiberglass pigs that local artists have decorated in a variety of interesting ways. The auction was yesterday and, since my wife is a big fan of pigs (insert joke about yours truly here) we decided that we’d buy a pig.
Enter Puerco Vaca, a pig created by local artist Colin Reedy. It’s… interesting.
