This delicious looking piece of work is called Entitle, and is the work of Amanda Parer. The work is a social commentary on contemporary lifestyle, while using traditional lantern-making techniques.
Entitle was one of many displays in the Vivid Festival in Sydney. While Vivid lures countless wannabe photographers like myself, you have to pick and choose your battles.
I will say one thing, Vivid is great practice for going flash-less if you can tear yourself away from the mesmerising building animations.
As for the pigs, they were far too cute to be interpreted in any negative way.
