Community Pigs In Bath

A herd of more than 60 pig sculptures, above, appeared yesterday as part of a public art project. The King Bladud’s Pigs in Bath art initiative will eventually lead to 100 of the animals scattered across the city.

The white, life-sized sculptures will be painted and decorated on behalf of different communities and businesses across the region. Residents hope that the project will boost awareness of a 3,000-year-old legend, which tells how King Bladud founded Bath after discovering the healing powers of its hot spring waters while walking with his swine.

How long before some tabloid muppett calls a gurning loon and invites him to say how pigs are an affront to Islam, and that the pigeons he talks to in the precinct are so much pure?
