Pigs in Bath

Earlier in the month I got a postcard, it was a picture of a pig in Bath – and I just had to check it out.

King Bladud’s Pigs in Bath was a summer 2008 public art event to celebrate Bath, its origins and its artists. Over one hundred life-size pig sculptures turned into works of art are on display throughout the summer all around Bath and beyond. I managed to find 59 pigs – all of the photos are here.

All the pigs are due to be rounded up at the end of the month, and auctioned off in October.  I hope they will be herded into one area prior to the auction as I would certainly head back to Bath to check them out.
