Billosaur, Ceramic Piggybank by Lemouton Noir & Co.

View all 5 Photos

Put your fist in the air! Representing a generation of youth that will not conform. Make way for the freaks, the weird-os, self adorned artists sporting colorful hair sculpted into perfect liberty spikes. Wearing chains, piercing ourselves like a human pin cushion, we cover our skin in sleeves of ink. Always blending in as we stand out wondering if anyone would notice, that we are bakers and mothers and we are teachers and professionals, musicians and chefs.  Many say we would grow out of it. Some say too much and relentlessly judge.  Curtain drawn, the counterculture.

The piggy bank has just been stunned by the new guy on the block, B.B. billosaur. This character certainly knows how to make an entrance. He has revolutionized the traditional design with circular holes in the shape of a rebellious mohawk. Make a deposit by simply rolling up bills and popping them into the back. The cavity inside allows you to save save save for another bottle of Knob Creek, or a set of nerf guns for the kiddos of course. He’s stickin it to the pig with a prehistoric style but keeping it cute and sensitive exposing his adorable belly button. Handmade porcelain in sweetly white, its round torso is held up by firm feet planted on either side.  Natural corks secure the 7 openings perfectly when not in use.

Artist George Lee of New York, New York’s Le Mouton Noir & Co. attributes his inspiration to the amazing transformation of his wife’s body during pregnancy. The bigger and more impressive her shape took, the less and less his bank seemed to have in it.  Baby equals money. He reinvented the traditional child’s bank into something much more practical for happily expecting parents, hopeful to beef up those accounts again. $39 available at GSelect
