Posh Pigboard (upholstered)

I was asked to contribute to a group show at The Last Gallery for all artists who have exhibited there in the past five years. Although I'm not really an artist, I often have my chairs in the windows between shows.

The theme for the exhibition was 'The Local Show' referring to agricultural shows in general, so I created this very posh Pigboard - a device for blocking a pig's sight, causing the pig to keep moving and not create havoc in the show arena.

It was shown with the  title "Posh Pigboard - for the farmer who likes to treat pigs with greater care".

Astonishingly, no-one seemed to want to buy it, so if anyone knows a pig farmer with a penchant for soft furnishings, let me know.
