This animal has become a symbol of hope and resilience for many people in the country. The “strong and stubborn pig,” as her name is translated from Chinese, died of old age in June last year, but the body of the beast was embalmed and is now kept in the Jianchuan Museum in Sichuan province.
Han Meilin portrayed a resistant pig on the day after the 14th anniversary of the earthquake. Thus, he paid tribute to the brave Zhu Jianqiang. The artist also said that with his painting he wanted to give people a good mood and remind them that every day is beautiful.
