Why this is a
Masterpiece

The piglet represents happiness and fortune. The piglet is depicted both in a realistic and symbolic manner. The body of the animal is realistic but the symbol of cosmic forces – masculine and feminine - on its body - transform the domestic animal into an entity of a symbolic world, whereas the painted flowers show the painter’s affection towards the little piglet that can be often seen in folk art.
