Goddess Pig in the works



See images below as ordinary white fibre glass pig turns into beautiful Goddess Pig. Medium used was matt acrylic, acrylic pens and glitter glue, I then finished it with a gloss varnish. The requirements when submitting your entry was a concept drawing and what the theme of your pig will be. 

My theme was inspired by Ancient Eastern religions in which the pig represented desire, lust, love of material possessions, lust for food and sexual saisfaction...in those repects I found the idea of creating a Deity in the form of a Pig fitting for todays society. I wanted to give her a Greek Goddess feel so I embellished her with feminine elements like flowers and swirls.

..so chuffed when I received word that my submission was selected for one out of hundred pigs for the Pigs on Parade.  My theme was inspired by ancient eastern religions in which the pig represented desire, love, desire for material possessions, lust for food and sexual satisfaction. In those respects I found the idea of creating a Deity in the form of a pig fitting for today's society. I wanted to give her a Greek Goddess feel so I embellished her with feminine elements like floral motifs and swirls and captions "Goddess Pig", "All hail Goddess Pig" and "Oh Goddess Pig, what a beautiful piggy you are!"  I used matte acrylic paint with acrylic pens and glitter glue completed with gloss varnish to finish.
