A town made of clay

As I told you here, there's a town near Santiago called Pomaire, which is very famous for its clay pottery. In the picture, taken in an handicraft shop in Pomaire, you can see a piggy bank made of clay. They're quite popular in Chile. The sad part is that you have to break it to get your money...
While I was looking for some info for this post, I found this very nice chilean restaurant located in New York, called "Pomaire".

a mi siempre me ha dado pena romper el bendito chanchito, es ke es injusto, pero como ke eso enseña a ke las cosas ke valen la pena tienen un costo.

Nope, it doesn't have a plastic belly button to open it. You HAVE to break it. So, if you become too fond with the little piggy, you'll never get your money back.
A suggestion: Don't give a name to the piggy bank! LOL...
