Rogers Waters and one of his inflatable pigs used during “The Wall” tour has come under a bit of scrutiny lately for including a Jewish “Star of David” symbol amongst the graffitti painted on the boar.
Waters who called for a boycott of Israel earlier this year and has been called “an open hater of Jews” by a Los Angeles area Rabbi has defend his use of the star with an open letter on his Facebook page. Here’s an excerpt,
“I also use the Crucifix, the Crescent and Star, the Hammer and Sickle, the Shell Oil Logo and The McDonald’s Sign, a Dollar Sign and a Mercedes sign (in the show)…”
A good friend of mine and a renowned professional music collector showed me a 167 in. by 82 in. piece of one of Waters inflatable pigs he had sitting in the trunk of his car. The pig was destroyed in a frenzy on May 19, 2012 at “The Wall” tour stop at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Here’s a few photos of the destroyed pig that is now up for sale.
You can make out the words “GOVERMENT” and part of the word “TRUST”. Here’s a video of clip at the end of the Los Angeles 2012 that shows when the pig was killed.
Leave a comment below to make an offer for the piece of pig. It is a must have for any Pink Floyd or Roger Waters fan and would look great as an art piece hanging on a “Wall“.
