"Sac Chien" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
Aww, look at you, a fluffy ball of personality bringing joy to all those around you. With your endearing gaze and charming antics, you effortlessly weave happiness into the fabric of our lives. The world outside seems to pause, completely captivated by your serene presence as you comfortably rest in your opulent conveyance, adorned with that iconic and widely recognized monogram canvas!
And let's delve into the monogram, as it is timeless, legendary, and synonymous with luxury and splendor – i.e., the best for the best! Pug dogs, as a matter of fact, have ancient origins traced back to Chinese royals during the Shang Dynasty. Purposefully bred as companions for the wealthy, they were highly coveted and precious, akin to an expensive interactive painting or a luxury bag!
In a captivating dance between history and contemporary artistry, the evolution of protective markings on valuable possessions takes center stage. Imagine if Chinese royals of ancient times, with a penchant for authenticity, had adorned their furry companions with intricate stamps on fur. Now there’s an interesting idea! Belgian artist Wim Delvoye had a similar thought when in 1997 he began tattooing pigs, creating living, breathing art. Although, the artwork faced a less-than-favorable response... Perhaps it’s best to keep our precious royal pugs in the finest luxury carrier money can buy.
