Good Luck Pig

$ 6.00

DESCRIPTION

This delightful terracotta pig was made with clay dug from the mountainside near the village of Pomaire, Chile. Traditionally used to create earthenware cookware used over an open fire, this clay was used instead to create these “chanchitos” (a little three-legged pig). These pigs were historically given to friends as tokens of love and good fortune -- with rich culture and empowered artisans behind these little piggies gift them to your friends and family as well.
