This absolutely delightful and amusing sculpture is the work of a contemporary Italian sculptor named Raimondi Malerba Marcantonio. He has won many awards, and shows in several galleries, and is quite well known in Italy.
He specializes in animal sculptures, and each one is unique, with a lot of personality. This captivating pig welcomes the viewer with a smile, is amazingly life-like, but doesn’t smell, snort or mess the floor.
The pig is crafted from iron, wood, papier mache, stucco and acrylic.
It measures 19H x 28L x 11D inches.
