Three little pigs -- well TWO little pigs, anyway!
This javelina family is part of a herd of bronze sculptures by Mark Rossi that are displayed on the Desert Museum's front patio. The little ones are called "reds." Some of Rossi's javelina were cast with piggy bank slots on their backs! FUN! P.S. I know, I know... they are peccaries, not pigs!!
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
