This adorable handmade clay pig is a meaningful symbol in Chile's vibrant culture, where tradition holds that three-legged pigs bring good luck to their owners. Makes a great gift for yourself or someone special... after all, who couldn't use a bit of good fortune?
- Measures approximately 1.5" H x 2" sq. (3.8 x 5.1 cm)

Because each cute piglet is handmade, expect some slight variations.
What a good friend to come in the mail.
He has a pleasant weight to him. I cleaned him off with rubbing alcohol and there was no kind of paint or stain that came off--he was already nice and clean. When you hold him, it's very soothing--he fits right between your fingers in your palm, and your thumb fits between his ears, so you can rub him like a worry stone. He is probably a good gift for anyone with sensory issues.
He has holes for his eyes, but the sculptor gave him an extra hole under his tail... naughty!
I got the brown version, which is as pictured and quite smooth. The black one looks a little well-done and may not be as good for rubbing with your fingers.
I love these little pigs! Such an unusual gift that brings smiles and good luck.
Simply adorable! A joyful addition to the kitchen.
