And I cannot lie.
This is a print of an original watercolor painting of pork butt. Here's a little PSA -- pork butt (aka Boston Butt) is NOT from the pig's rear. It is the top of the shoulder. There isn't really a clear consensus on WHY it is called a butt, but some historians believe it has to do with the colonial American practice of storing this cheap cut of pork in large casks or barrels (also known as "butts").
Hat tip to the one and only Sir-Mix-A-Lot for the classic caption.
Part of my 19-part series of "cheeky meat" paintings, this can work as well in the kitchen as it would framed in the bedroom. Or wherever, really.
Print measures 8.5 x 11, and is printed with archival pigment inks on archival velvet fine art paper. The paper is slightly textured, like watercolor paper. The quality is pretty amazing, and is often mistaken for an original. Perfect for a food lover (or just your lover *wink*), your own home, or the special chef in your life.
Print is signed and shipped flat in protective cello bag and bend proof fiberboard mailer.
Thanks for looking!
