"BIG PIG GIG"
My name is Ahimsa, a Sanskrit word meaning “no harm to any being.”
I am a life-size pig painted as a vegetarian entree in Cincinnati’s Big
Pig Gig where I hope to spread my message of compassion and promote the
causes of my sponsors, EarthSave and Farm Sanctuary. Through me,
artist Mary Ann Lederer expresses both her sadness over the plight of farm
animals and her vision of an ideal world – a farm sanctuary – of safety,
kindness, and beauty. I am a living mountain with river and waterfalls
and gardens and flowers. People and many other animals climb together
toward a blue sky and golden wings. I sing a song by Mary-Jane Newborn,
If only I could fly,
I’d be up in the sky.
Kiss your slaughterhouse goodbye.
