Type:

Geography:

Date:
1989
Label Text:
Barbershop and commercial signs provide a living for the man who painted this pig. This signed painting was created by a Igbo artist living in Benin City, Nigeria who sells work under the name HIMS, likely for his own amusement than in the hope that it would sell.
The domesticated pig is raised on scraps and often unconfined. In some areas, large-scale pig farms are being tested even though devout Muslims do not eat pork. The wild pig, by contrast, is a threat to farmers' crops. In parts of central Africa the wild pig is described as "uncontrollable as a woman" and featured on initiation masks.
Description:
Painting of a proper left profile of a brown pig.
