Three creative artists choose from a variety of designs ranging from Disney characters to Louis Vuitton logos and other random patterns that are popular among Russian prison inmates. The magic happens as the pigs are put under anaesthesia then later on massaged and moisturized by their special caregivers. Their skins are then closely monitored until their skin is ready for the market. Just recently Chanel was able to purchase one canvas wearing the Disney characters.
Meanwhile, animal advocates are criticizing Delvoye’s animal exploitation for personal profit gains. “Pigs, cows, and chickens are emotional, thinking animals who feel pain every bit as much as we do, and they value their lives,” a PETA spokesperson said.

4-year-old Girl Left Home At 3 A.M. And Took The Bus Alone To Get A ‘Slushie.’ ADORABLE Kid!
4-year-old Annabelle Ridgeway left home at 3AM to get a Slushie.
Kids are naturally curious and they always see things as an opportunity or a possibility. For them, happiness is simple and they are willing to do anything of their capacity to get what they want. Sometimes, that happiness can mean a 'Slushie' craving during the wee hours, yes.
This little girl named Annabelle Ridgeway, 4 years old, gave her parents quite a scare when she left their home in Philadelphia at around 3:00 a.m. and took the bus alone to get herself a Slushie. This innocent kid didn't even bother waking up her parents and headed straight out in her purple raincoat. She is just a kid after all, an adorable one at that as well.
Fortunately, the bus driver who is a father of 3 kids including some kind passengers saw Annabelle and thought that her parents might be worried so they made sure that she returns home safe. Soon enough, Annabelle and her parents were reunited at a local hospital. Her mother even promised her a Slushie even after sneaking out. They also plan to reconfigure their locks at home to make sure that this doesn't happen again.
Little Annabelle and her love for Slushie. Her innocence is both fascinating and funny.
