Last month we posted the Pennywell Farm in Buckfastleigh, Devon, England, breeders of awesomely cute Miniature Pigs. Today we learned that those micro pigs aren’t just adorable, they’re also artistic!
As a novel approach the fundraising, the staff at Pennywell Farm have turned their pigs on to painting. The miniature pigs created works of modern art which sold for up to £16 ($25) each. All proceeds went to the Farm Crisis Network charity.
Dubbed “Trotters Independent Painters”, the little pigs began their career by accident when they broke loose at a craft fair taking place at their home, and began investigating tins of non-toxic paint with their snouts and trotters. Farm co-owner Chris Murray said, ”The pigs tended to go more for Pointilism - they weren’t too keen on Cubism. We think of them as our little Pigassos.”
It’s Pig Day on Geyser of Awesome!
