This fiberglass sculpture depicts a pig standing on its hind legs. It is painted with depictions of music and theatre arts, including a pair of comedy/tragedy drama masks, the fretboard of a guitar, and a brass instrument.

This sculpture was created as part of "The Big Pig Gig Do-Re-Wee" project (follow-up to the larger "The Big Pig Gig" exhibition of 2000) in the summer of 2012. Local artists and schools created pig sculptures that were displayed throughout downtown Cincinnati for the World Choir Games.
