The work is comprised of 7,000 handmade pigs.

Seunghwui Koo creates her works drawing inspiration from the daily happenings and intricate moments of her life in NYC. Her work is a commentary on the lives of New Yorkers as she has witnessed. She was born in South Korea, where she first had the idea of combining the pig’s head and human body. The significance of the pig’s head lies in the different symbolic meanings from the Eastern and Western cultures. Good fortune (Eastern) and greed (Western), two very different connotations of the pig, are themes that are a part of her works. She uses resin, acrylic, plaster, clay, and mixed media to create her works.

The work has many different topographical features and is visually striking. Each pig figurine measures 0.5" x 1" x 0.5". All of the pigs are made out of ceramic. Each pig is handmade, a mold was not used because it is a meditative practice of hand-building in which I create imagery and objects in mass that speak to both our uniqueness and anonymity. The frame is ready to hang on a wall. Aluminum bar hanger on the back.

This work is a unique original work of art - Sculpture by Seunghwui Koo (United States), Ceramics on Wood. Its dimensions are 35.6x27.9x7.6 cm. The artist's signature is present on the artwork.
