The sculpture was created by Mati Karmin and unveiled in front of the Tartu Market on 17 January 2008.
The steel barrel rests on a granite base and the numbers and letters cut into the base inform the viewer that the date when the sculpture was opened, 17 January, is St Anthony’s Day when old Estonians used to turn their attention to the pig.

Escaping from the Butcher!

Huge sculpture pig in front of the covered market. Guess the pig escaped from the butcher! Very fun!



the pig is cool

loved the pig. he rules here. its big - quirky and a least people then notice the market behind it. really dont know if there is anything more to the pig but i know i like him.



A pig? Why? Why not?

Spotted this pig on its plinth outside the market. Why here - don’t know, but it is nevertheless fun. Nothing clever.... it is just a pig!
