The University of Arkansas
ICON Artworks is proud to pay tribute to the beloved University of Arkansas mascot with our officially licensed RAZORBACK Desktop Sculpture! A perfect gift for students, alumni, faculty, and fans alike! GO HOGS!!
Of all the colleges and universities in America, the University of Arkansas is the only one that has a Razorback as its mascot. The athletic teams were originally called the Cardinals. After a hard-fought victory over LSU in 1909, Coach Hugo Bezdek said the team played "like a wild band of Razorback hogs." The students loved it and the rest is history. The "hog call" is the only such cheer in the U.S. as well. WOOO PIG SOOIE!!

ICON Artworks Cast Pewter is handcrafted by our team of skilled artisans with an antique finish in the highest quality, lead-free Fine Pewter alloy used for sculpture. After platinum, gold, and silver, pewter is the fourth-most-precious metal in the world. Pewter has been used since the Bronze Age because of its lustrous silver finish, its malleability, durability, and its ability to capture incredibly fine detail. Pewter does not rust or deteriorate and can be enjoyed for generations.
