As a symbol, a pig represents good luck, abundance, determination, and sincerity. It helps to achieve the impossible and scriptures of Feng Shui hold the pig as a lucky trait. Pigs are also sacred in several religions, including the Druids of Ireland, whose priests were called "swine". One of the animals sacred to the Roman goddess Diana was the boar; she sent the Calydonian boar to destroy the land. In East Asian households, it is recommended that keeping a fattened pig in one’s house would bring in wealth, good fortune and prosperity.
