Let’s find the Patient Pig!

This one is in Gallery 224 (the long hallway!). It’s pretty small so you’ll have to look at the cases very carefully. 

Pig, China, Han Dynasty (206 B.C.E.-220 C.E.), Greenish nephrite (jade) with brown veining. 1 1/the 6 x 3/34 x 15/16 inches (2.6988 x 9.525 x 2.3812 cm). Bequest of Laurence Sickman. F88-40/20

How can you tell this is a pig?

Can you spot its curly tail and snout? 

What are people born in the year of the Pig like?

The Pig is honest, caring , and generous. Pigs are entertaining, and so other animals like being around them.
