Babe – a large white pig sitting in profile wearing tiny wings
The classic quotation ‘Pigs can Fly’ was the inspiration behind this image for Rachael. Babe was one of the largest pigs Rachael has worked with and the perfect candidate for the concept of tiny wings. Pigs are extremely smart creatures, it didn’t take long to train Babe to sit on command, and she wasn’t fazed with having the tiny wings strapped to her back using elastic that came down under her armpits (the elastic was removed in post-production). As long as there was licorice allsorts or a slice of bread on offer, Babe would have sat and posed for hours.
This image was published in Rachael’s book It’s a Zoo Out There.
Babe was photographed on Rachael’s 4x5 inch Toyo View Camera with Portra 160 film using a large Elinchrom Octa Studio Flash.
Rachael recommends this image be framed using a White or Whitewashed Frame, with or without a white border.
Fine Art Prints are available in five different sizes; 10x12, 12x16, 16x20, 24x30 and 30x40 inches
We have a collection of beautifully crafted Wood Box frames available in 5 different colour ways to choose from for framing your Fine Art Prints: Black, White, White Wash, Grey and Dark Wood.
Fine Art Prints can be framed full bleed, or you can choose the option to have a white border around your image to separate the image from the frame. If you choose to have a border, the image size will be smaller; for example, if you choose a 10x12 inch print with a border, your final product size will be 10x12 inch but your image size will be closer to 8x10 inches. See sample photo.
