This fiberglass sculpture depicts a winged pig standing on its hind legs. It is dressed in the helmet and clothing of a Roman soldier, an homage to Cincinnatus, after whom the city of Cincinnati is named.

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.
