Piggy Bank from the collection

From the curio cabinet this pig made its presence again in my life.  I made this for my father when in college my first year, or maybe it was late high school.  I had a feeling for papier mache and forms, and my father had a piggy bank collection.  I wanted to gift him a pig unlike any in his collection and this is the only one of the collection still remaining so many years later.  The rickrack is such a reminder of our hand made dresses from childhood and the color seems more of these days than the 6os.  When I pulled this fellow from the cabinet both sister and brother thought I ought to bring him home for a visit.....and explore again that past life of creation.
