A Pig – The Guildhall Market

King Bladud's Pigs public art event of 2008 was a resounding success and one of the most popular pigs was 'Juturna' sponsored by the traders of Bath Guildhall Market. Painted in a Japanese relief style by local artist Jane Eaton and named after the Roman Godess of Springs, 'Juturna' was such huge favourite with the public that the Guildhall Market Traders eventually bought the pig at auction in order that it could remain on permanent display in the Market. You will find 'Juturna' standing proud under the magnificent Victorian Dome in the centre of Bath Guildhall Market. Open Mon to Sat 8am to 5.30pm.
