Great God Pig

Great God Pig

This was taken in 2004 during a rare festival honoring ghosts who do not have relatives to care for them. The thinking is these ghosts do not have relatives to provide them with food and money in the after life so the community honors them once every 20 years or so (I can't remember the exact number). The sign in front of this pig read, "Great God Pig" weight 1290 pounds, the farmers name who rose the pig and won the 6000 Taiwan dollar reward for largest pig. It was quite the pig (that is a full size pineapple in its mouth)!!
