Schweini: Origami pig by Tom Strala.

Living with pigs in your home is not something most people would usually aspire to. But Austrian based designer Tom Strala has other ideas. He has conceived this piece, as a fun object that gives home owners a chance to own a little sculpture.

He calls it living with culture.

“Schweini”, as the piece is called, is cut from a single copper sheet that is perforated so it can be hand-folded to create the origami pig. When finished it stands about 10cm high and is around 15cm long.

Paint it with vinegar and it might turn green!

Gratitude to mocoloco.
