GigaPan Beta + Sony DSC-H7
These pigs were individually decorated by local artists as a fund-raising initiative for the "Two Tunnels" sustainable transport project (www.twotunnels.org.uk /). They were on public display on the streets of Bath for six months in 2008 and were a great tourist attraction. You can see some of the pigs in their original locations by searching on the keyword "Bladud" and some of the snapshots have comments with links to the pig in the snapshot like this: www.gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=6439&snapshot_id=31294.
The original pig was sculpted by Alan Dun: www.alandun.co.uk and www.gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=11385&snapshot_id=31484.
There are over 100 pigs in total. This pano shows most of them. Sadly for the public, the pigs were sold at public auction. Happily for the Two Tunnels project, they raised a great deal of money. At least one pig sold for tens of thousands of pounds.
