King Bladud and his pigs Our Artists Bath City - Ladymead Fountain, Walcot Street


The 70 best pick sculptors were sold at auction on 31 October 2008. The minimum price was 1250, the pig selling for the highest amount was Tattoo Pig by Peter Blake which sold at 21,000. Altogether, the gala auction raised 216,000.

Here is a short film about the auction:

A further 35 pigs were sold in an online auction, raising a further 55,000. Once both the gala auction and the online auction were over with all 100 pigs sold - only Pigsaw was left: he lived at our workshop throughout the summer and children were allowed to fill in the jigsaw pieces. Every now and then he had to go take the place of a pig that had been damaged and was in for repair. He was raffled in October 2008 1500 people bought 1-tickets. Clare Teal drew the winning ticket which belonged to Mike Watts of the Guildhall Market.

Pigsaw Claire, Mike & Pigsaw
