Pig playing Bagpipes.


Taken from the medieval carvings (1490 – 1495) from within the choir stalls of Ripon Cathedral on one of the lavishly ornate carved Misericords. This carving is of a Pig or may probably be a Hog that is playing a set of bagpipes. There are many carvings from the medieval period found throughout English Cathedrals today that show pigs and hogs having fun and participating in human cultural activities. In the middle ages these animals were thought of as being jolly, intelligent and most of all being happy and content with life in times that were very uncertain for the people of the period. Again like most of the carvings from Ripon this is in exceptional condition and recreated with all the fine detail from the master craftsmen that carved them.
