The sculpture takes the form of three pigs: one sitting at the top of the bank, the second pig rolling part way down the bank, and the third pig at the bottom of the basin. In celebration of the millennium year, Greenfield Valley appointed six artists to create a sculpture trail within the park. The scheme was funded by the Millennium Festival Commission and supported by the Greenfield Valley Trust and various sponsors. Each of the residencies involved workshop sessions with school and/or community groups. Reece Ingram obtained pieces of oak, donated by Manweb as part of the Rural Care initiative. He wanted to capture the humorous aspect of the site as well as taking inspiration from the farm museum. He worked with schoolchildren from St Winefrides CP School, Holywell.
