This is 62nd in a series spotlighting pigs from the Big Pig Gig Public Art Project taking place in Cincinnati, Covington and Newport. Find past pig profiles and event details at Cincinnati.com/bigpiggig.

Artist: Kathy Raab, 36, Sharonville. This is one of two pigs by the artist.

Sponsor: Collins International.

This pig's pen: Fountain Square.

You were inspired by: Actually the design I submitted was for a very realistic zebra striped pig, but the sponsor was looking for someone to do a realistic Bengal tiger.

What's the pig idea? It's the way the city would feel if the Bengals won the Super Bowl.

Completing the project took: 50 hours.

What's the matter? Exterior latex.

Your high on the hog was: Getting the assignment to do the pig.

Pig peeve: Having to rent a cargo van to pick up and deliver the pig.

Best pig tale: My husband and I have been living in Pittsburgh for the past 10 years, so we haven't really been following the Bengals.

My favorite pork dish: Honey baked ham.

The materials cost: $100.

Do you consider this art or porkography? It's porkography unless the Bengals do better this season. Then it's art.

If your pig starred in a movie, who would you cast to play the role? Mike Brown.
