In collaboration with Matt Lai and Kimi Jiang
We interpreted the Year of the Pig as symbolising generosity and material prosperity. We were inspired by the Chinese custom of giving a gold medal in the shape of a pig as a gift for newborns or the newly married as a token of prosperity. Children born in the Year of the Pig are regarding as lucky. The Pig is amiable and good natured so we have made a connection to the amusing image of the flying pig relating to the expression ‘pigs might fly’ often heard in Australian larrikin humour.
