Pig


Description Provenance Credit
Description This pig statuette was produced in Boeotia, a region of ancient Greece known for its prolific output of terracotta figurines. The pig was a common sacrificial offering, and figurines may have served as votive offerings in place of live sacrifices. Examples of pig-shaped children's toys and sippy cups are also known.
Provenance Dr. Lucille Liberles [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Mrs. Peggy Bohanan [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, October 1980, by gift.
