OINKY: THE RECESSION-PROOF PIG
Beautifully hand-painted in Pepto Bismol pink by refugees in Sudan, Oinky is guaranteed to please even the fussiest collector. Oinky rests on four meticulously crafted feet. This delightful pig will entertain you for hours with his two whimsical ears, two of the sweetest black ebony eyes made from brilliantly colored faux pearls, and a penny receptacle snout (coins not included).
Show the world you care deeply about the recession. Oinky is delicately wrapped in a fine solid sterling silver chain of links. This world class lovable piggy replica features a porcelain body, glowing with personality and charm.
Oinky is the creation of Thurston Howell, reknown master of bacon-inspired art. It's an exquisite showpiece fit for a queen or king.
Imagine the joy on your children's faces as they discover that once they drop a penny into Oinky's snout, it's inside Oinky's belly forever.
