This offering is sold.
Pigs display unique behaviors, such as being self-aware and able to recognize themselves in a mirror. They are among the smartest of all domesticated animals. Stanton Hannaweeke is one of the first and best carvers of pigs from Zuni Pueblo. A plump body, coiled tail, etched hooves, a sensitive snout and expressive eyes of inlaid turquoise come together in a wonderful representation of a pig. The dolomite portion is exceptionally attractive, layered with cream, tan, soft pink and brick red colorations. About 2" long, 3/4" wide and 1 1/4" tall.
