CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION
A drawing done in black ink on a white background depicting a hair pig standing on a rounded and striped structure. A cylinder with extrusions comes out of the structure and has small clouds clustered by its end. There is a triangle with an eye and beams coming off it above the pig. A speech bubble comes from the pig that reads: "a pig is a pig is a pig." Elongated letters make up the top left quarter of the image and they read: "do not cast pearls before swine." The elongation of "cast" covers part of the beams coming from the triangle.
