Rachel’s look-alike “Golden Pearl” goes on tour
for the Year of the Pig 2019
Rachel the Piggy Bank is sharing her fiberglass stunt double — one of the original art pigs from Pigs on Parade in 2007 — with Seattle’s Chinese community to celebrate the Lunar Year of the Pig 2019!
Local artist, Zuolie Deng, has created 珠珠 “Ju Ju” (pronounced Zoo Zoo), also known as Golden Pearl. This brilliant work of pig art symbolizes prosperity, good luck and longevity. Her design includes Chinese coins painted in red on her belly, calligraphy on her back, peonies blushing her cheeks, and clouds on her hooves lifting her to her highest potential.
Golden Pearl will travel the Seattle region for the next year to make her appearance at events hosted by Seattle’s Chinese community. She’ll also make her Market debut at PIG Day Out! in Pike Place Market on March 1st!
Thank you to our partners at Washington State Asian Pacific Education & Culture Foundation, Washington State Sichuan Friendship Association, Wing Luke Museum and Ellen Ferguson for bringing Golden Pearl to life for the Lunar Year of the Pig 2019!
