A group of artists, architects and designers were asked to transform an Ernest Race BA2 chair for an auction in aid of the Art Room charity. Angela Palmer created ‘Four Legs Good’ inspired by Snowball, the Trotsky based revolutionary pig in George Orwell’s Animal Farm. In the book, Orwell writes: ‘After much thought Snowball declared that the Seven Commandments could in effect be reduced to a single maxim, namely: ‘Four legs good, two legs bad.’ This, he said, contained the essential principle of Animalism. Whoever had thoroughly grasped it would be safe from human influences.’ The artist bought pig’s trotters from the butcher and cast them in brass using the ancient lost wax process. Gallery link
