"Piggity Big"

This sculpture by David Hlynsky and Shirley Yanover  sits on College St at the Augusta St entrance to the Kensington Market area and is a complement to the one they installed at  the Spadina Ave entrance which I showed you here. It sits high atop a 20' pole surrounded by countless wires and traffic lights which tend to hide it a lot. I'm not sure of the significance of the name!

I'll admit to not being the smartest guy on the block,but someone will have to explain it to me!

This is a unique way to attract visitors. In fact, I might work on a project of photographing such in future photography

Strange but interesting.

I have never noticed this before! I'm definitely looking for it the next time I'm down there. :)

I don't get the name, either, even though I like the sculpture. Maybe it refers to how all over the world people make pigs of themselves when eating? ;-)

After they explain it to Paul in Powell River, would you mind getting in touch with me and passing on the explanation.

That is too fun. Nice piece.

Some things don't need to have a significance to be fun. ;-)

I guess with all that happens in the world, every second of every day, the planet needs a 'sit down' every now and again!

Kinda strange.

It's got to have some significant meaning Red, it just has to.. and here is another reason why it pays to look up now and then right!!

hmmm, I don't get it, but it is something other than wires to look up at.

Fascinating - Wonderful juxtaposition, wonder what their intent was.

I'm afraid I'm another one that doesn't have a clue what this means. :))
