This particular piece has a unique combination of jarred pickles and one jarred Garfield character. The series of eight pickle-filled jars, a ninth container holds a baffled image of the famously gluttonous Garfield the Cat. A lighthearted tribute to Delaware County, this piece commemorates the home canning and glass jar industries. Pickles were chosen as the jarred vegetables of this piece due to the contrast of their green color with the bright orange Garfield.
