This little piggy went to market (and is on his way to hog heaven)
A Taiwanese woman plucks a hair from the back of a sacrificial pig during a religious ceremony in a temple in Chiayi City in southern Taiwan. This plucking action is believed to bring wisdom and well-being to the plucker and perhaps a nice place in hog heaven for the pluckee.
