Pinehurst Picks

In honor of the Chinese Lunar New Year 2019, the Year of the Pig, there is a temporary installation somewhere in Pinehurst. Where is it? Can you find it?

The Pig is the twelfth of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. Pig was late because he overslept. Another story says that a wolf destroyed his house. He had to rebuild his home before he could set off. When he arrived, he was the last one and could only take twelfth place.

In Chinese culture, pigs are the symbol of wealth. Their chubby faces and big ears are signs of fortune as well.

Thank you to Amy, Pinehurst knitter, for tailoring Pig’s warm winter sweater!
