About the Sculpture
“Pig” was carved from a large section of the same oak tree that “Silverback” was made from. Oak is a fantastic wood to carve and has such amazing figuring (patterns) within the grain. It was also nice to be able to use some more from this wonderful tree, which was toppled some years ago (near to my studio) when it was struck by lightning.
This was a commissioned piece, but my main source of reference was from photos that my wife (Lesley) had taken at various country shows we had attended in the past. If you are interested in commissioning a sculpture yourself, please visit the “How to Commission a Sculpture” page.
