What's wrong with these ceramic pigs? They only have three legs....but that's a good thing. The three-legged pigs bring good luck to those that possess them, according to legend in South America. People in the pueblo of Pomaire, Chile, famous for its pottery, have been giving these three-legged pigs as good luck charms for as long as anyone can remember. The red clay pigs drive away evil spirits and attract good fortune. Get yourself a pig or give one to a friend. Good luck! Since they are one of a kind, sizes vary but the average pig is 2 1/4" high when standing on its three legs.
