Love this. Canadian glass-blowing artist Jill Alan has created two piggy banks for the Toronto design exhibit, Radiant Dark. These "Bacon Savers" riff on our complex and, let's be honest, often untruthful relationships with money.

The translucent pig reflects the contents inside, enlarging the size and amount of pennies (or other coins) inside. The mirrored pig shows a distorted reflection of the onlooker, while simultaneously hiding the contents, and value, inside.

My favorite part? You insert all coins "through the nose."

Hah! Just genius!
