S e c r e t s:
A pile of pigs clamber over their trough of mass-produced 'McSwill' feed. Look for one pig smoking a pipe and another with a cigarette clutched in its trotter. These items are for the production of smoked hams and bacon. On the interior is an empty pen with a sign indicating that the residents have been sent off to slaughter. Peter’s ambivalent feelings about bacon are also carved on the interior. On the inside of the lid is the inscription 'fox,' inspired by the foxes who have taken up residence in the Calvesberts’ garden. 'H/D' stands for 'hawks and doves,' a term which the media has used frequently in the recent stand-off with Iraq. The mouse can be seen beneath the trough. Fixed edition of 2500 Version One and 2500 Version Two worldwide.
