Artist’s Fun Fact:

These six piglets are restless and ready for adventure! The balloons are a mix of helium and Freon tanks, the basket is made of recycled rebar and the piglets’ bodies are survival air tanks discarded by the local fire department.

This sculpture is for sale and is available for lease.
