Mud pig

The Alabama artist Jimmy Lee Sudduth (d. 2007) "painted" this porker probably in the 1980s. Sudduth used a sugar water/mud mix. If you're unfamiliar with Sudduth, he became quite well known because of the sometimes great images he made with mud, and because of his outsize personality. Fans flocked to his small home in Fayette, eager to exchange green for mud. Sudduth died at the ripe old age of 97.


  1. A mighty fine pig. He could have trotted right out of a cave at Lascaux.
