This fiberglass sculpture depicts a pig sitting on its haunches. The painting on the front of its body features a blue sky with clouds, while the bottom half of its body is painted with sunflowers and other flowers.

The sculpture was created as part of "The Big Pig Gig" project in the summer of 2000. Local artists and schools created over 400 pig sculptures that were displayed throughout downtown Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. At the conclusion of the exhibition, some of the works were sold on eBay and many remain on public display throughout the greater Cincinnati area.
