'Delftware' Tile - The Bommer Pig

'Delftware' Tile - The Bommer Pig

One of the 13 faux Delft tiles (actually acrylic on panel) I created last week especially for my Wunderkabinett solo exhibition at the week-end. The Show was in a Georgian period townhouse, which not untypically have blue & white Delftware tiles surrounding the hearths.

This porky pig with the butcher's chop-marks (and my tragicomic surname above him) is a reference to St. John's Bread & Wine, a nose-to-tail eaterie, just around the corner.
