    Provides three contrasting pictures of a pig, illustrating how it used to be, is now, and 'what it must come to'. The first pig is black and relatively lean, the second shows the fatter 'modern improvement', while the third, anticipating future developments, is so obese that its limbs have completely disappeared into its torso.
