This week’s quiz: visual language:  pigs’ ears notching

 

A difficult quiz this time!

This photograph shows eight works of art by the Danish-Dutch artist Jaap de Ruig.

eight pigs and their ears

The drawings show pigs whose ears have been cut. Some people eat pigs’ ears, other people indeed cut them. They have a special tool for this, so they can cut out small triangles from the ear. Ear notching, it is called.

The left ear (for the viewer) shows the litter of the pig, usually a high number, and the right ear shows the individual. As all pigs are brothers and sisters of litter 161, the left ear is therefore always the same. It indicates 161.

The right ear, however, is different for all the pigs. Each ear is cut in a way that it shows the individual numbers that are indicated on the ear.

THE QUESTION IS: HOW DOES THIS WRITING/NUMBERING SYSTEM FOR THE RIGHT EAR WORK???? How would number 9 be cut?

Two linguistic books can be chosen by the winner!

Send your answer to: quiz@lingoblog.dk at the latest Monday February 18, noon, and compete for an Ipad or a book on language or linguistics.
