controversial pig-themed art

In Alhambra, CA, several prints part of a city hall art exhibit intended to commemorate Chinese New Year have actually offended some residents because of their pig-themed depictions of Mao Zedong and the Chinese Red Army: Art exhibit in Alhambra offends some residents. One of the pieces imposes Mao and George Washington's images onto four piggy banks. I don't know what that's supposed to me, but you can't tell me that's not supposed to evoke some kind of political undertones. The works in the exhibit were created by four Chinese American artists. Guess you can't please everybody...
