Mother Load - Harmony Kingdom Pig Pile Box Figurine
Master Carver Peter Calvesbert read about a sow which “threw” 34 piglets. This set him off thinking what chaos feeding time must have been. This box figurine portrays a resigned mum in such a situation. He couldn’t quite carve 34 piglets into his model, running out of room at 22 (or so).
“Hogzilla”, inscribed on the lid, references a 12-foot-long wild hog that is part of local legend in small towns across Southern Georgia. The owner claims that the hog, now deceased, weighed 1,000 pounds. A second inscription, “Anne Langton”, refers to a collector who has amassed the largest pig collection in the UK, according to the Guinness record book.
The interior shows sausages, each inscribed with the name of a well-known pig from film or literature.
