Mighty Swine

Size: 8 inches tall by 16 inches wide

We have a Mighty "fine" Swine for our pig collectors. Fashioned on a cart rides this wonderfully huge hog. Hand carved from American chestnut and I have to mention the hog is not carved from one piece of wood. To get a larger width in the body of the hog there were 3 pieces glued together and Peter didn't hide the seams completely, he could have but decided he liked it as it was. The wood grain is beautiful and not completely hidden under the verdigris finish. The cart was left unpainted to really appreciate the beauty of American chestnut wood. There is a leather pull attached to the cart. The wheels are made from copper tubing and wire then made rusty by the artist.
