A&S COMPETITION: This year’s Boar’s Hunt (June 13-15) is Boars Galore!
There are many different ways that boars were represented in art or used in period. Whether it’s boars in heraldry, pigs in the Tres Riches Heures for the month of November, the 14th century painting of St. Anthony and the Pig, pigskin used for clothing or games or household goods, or recipes in “Den medeltida kokboken” (Swedish cookbook), pigs and boars are prevelant throughout the Middle Ages. They were inexpensive animals to feed and you got a lot of bang for your buck! I challenge you to make YOUR medieval artistic BOAR for our Boars Galore A&S contest!
1 Must be your original work and something that has not been entered into any other challenge or contest.
2. Must have a pig represented in the work somehow.
3. Documentation strongly encouraged–primary sources, if possible.
4. Edibles must be accompanied by a recipe. If they are meant to be EATEN, they must be stored in a safe manner until judges have a chance to eat it.
5. If you wish to have your item judged, please let me know what medium your pig is, and I will do my best to find a couple of judges to properly judge the item.
6. If you are not interested in having it judged, but would like to display your BOAR project, we will have a display space as well.
Any questions, please email me! ten.nozirev@rellehtsolk or call 425-367-4529
