We live life on the edge and love doing this with passion. We swim with sharks, trow down in the mud, sail acrossoceans and drink a bit too much, but that's just us. Whatever our thrills are, we live that day-to-day life and in the end we always want to find our way back home, to our loved ones.
Pig & Hen is created to help us find that way....
In the early 1600's the Dutch were the leading nation sailing out to unknown parts of the world, with the biggest naval fleet the world have ever seen. With some serious sea legs, they discovered new lands, different ways of life but also ran into some big obstacles along the way.
To protect themselves against bad luck the men had a tattoo of a pig and a hen on their feet. It was believed it gave the sailors the abiliity to survive when they had to abandan ship.
The sailors felt they would be able to find land, just like the pig and hen wo where kept in wooden crates and thus floated, and woukd let the tide bring them home.
