This suggests that the man is not physically attractive or noble-looking, but despite his appearance, he is able to rise to a position of power and authority. This could symbolize the idea that true leadership and greatness come from within, rather than being determined solely by outward appearances. The choice of a pig's head also adds a sense of irony and contradiction, as pigs are often associated with dirtiness and gluttony, while kings are typically seen as regal and dignified.
