The statue was made by ancient pigs a long time before the events of Bad Piggies, and was placed in a room full of other golden treasures.
King Pig, the King of Piggy Island, had discovered a vase had been stolen from its pedestal, and ordered Ross to find a replacement for the vase. Ross then wandered across Piggy Island with a rubber duck he brought along and a map; which led him to a secret room which the statue was in. It was later used to help Ross and his vehicles get back home.
The statue was presented to King Pig by its discoverer, Ross; and shortly after, was placed on the pedestal the vase was formerly displayed on, where it shined brightly and dazzled the king.
The statue is made of gold, wears a headdress, and has its tongue stuck out. The statue resembles King Pig.
