Roasted, basted and succulent in appearance, note that no critters were harmed in the making of THIS celebratory Pig Head table centerpiece (created as a stage prop and sculpted entirely of papier mache).....

Hi Patience: what a great centerpiece for a feast! Was he a commission? Wonderful work.

Thanks so much for taking a peek and for the nice comments, Steve, Joke, and Scylla -- very much appreciated! And indeed, Scylla, he was commissioned for stage use in a large theatrical production of the Nutcracker Ballet.....

Hi! Really cool! May I ask what the base was constructed out of?

Thanks for the nice comment and question, Emily -- and indeed, I constructed the base for the head as per my usual preferred method, building up the form and shape with newspaper and duct tape. Gotta love that duct tape! ;-)
