In the Year of the Pig - what a sweet little figurine is our Pablo the Pig!
This impressive piece (one of several ceramic figurines in our shop) is a stunning example of Spanish ceramic art. It is made in the northeast of Spain, famous for its Mediterranean seafronts along the Costa Brava and Costa Dorada, and of course for its culture and art. (Cataluña, or Catalonia was the birthplace of painter Salvador Dalí and Antoni Gaudi).
This ceramic piece is intricately finished in the Catalan modernism style . . a form of architectural art typically seen in and around Barcelona's Parc Guell. Each piece is hand-painted in dazzling colours to produce a beautiful and uniquely-crafted figurine that would make a delightful present . . and a unique gift from Spain.

Description: This Mediterranean Piglet figurine measures approx 9.5cms (3.7ins) high by 12.5cms (5ins) long by 5.5cms (2.2ins) wide. It would look perfect displayed either in the home or office. The hand-painted, porcelain-like finish is simply stunning in its detail and is an intricate piece of Spanish ceramic art. Because each one is individually painted, each figurine is distinct and so no single one is exactly the same as another (so figures may differ slightly from the photos here).
To some, the Pig is considered lucky: The Irish say: “It’s the pig who pays the bills” and even in China it is one of their horoscope animals, and so people born in the Year of the Pig can expect to attract wealth and good fortune. So this sweet little Piglet figurine would make a lovely gift to pass on your wishes for good fortune, for a house warming / new home present for example, or a gift for any event, or even for a person that just loves piggies! It is bound to attract admiring comments. Please Note: To preserve its fine features, it is best to keep this figurine indoors, or at least under-cover if outside.
The Spanish believe in good luck too ("la suerte") and this traditional product of Spain is a delightful piece of Spanish ceramic art.
