  2. Jack and Jill and the cow. . . .!

    Art? o_O o_O o_O 
     
  3. Nice catch and conversion. Perhaps title it The Effects of Wind on Cattle. :) 
     
  4. The consequences of bovine flatulence?
     
  5. I like how you captured this!

    Art? Why not.
    If the statue was meant to lay down like that, even more so :) 
    if not, accidental art.

    Some years ago, a limited series of cow statues (life size) were created over here to commemorate some event.
    Don't remember what it was though, just the cows :rolleyes: 
     
  6. I've seen cows in Chicago and elsewhere in the US; Moose in Minnesota, Helsinki and Northern Idaho, and of course Saxophones in Dinant, Belgium (home of the designer/inventor of the Sax)!

  8. ...and there are the ubiquitous Osborne Sherry ads in Spain...

  9. ...but we are leading the thread astray.

    I agree the original image does a great job of capturing the context of the upset cow. Maybe cow tipping gone badly wrong?
     
  10. Thank you for your comments - most of us have seen similar kinds of statues - mostly upright !

    It just looked a bit random - a cow on its side !

    Would have been better if there was a person in the picture - also dressed suitably random !

    Anyway, the story is that this is a dairy farm that attracts visitors, so they have a cow on top of the hill that is visible to passing traffic, and it must have got blown over.

    Maybe they would have been better with a silhouette like those Spanish bulls, as they seem to have withstood the test of time.

  12. Perhaps a shot with cows standing around the fallen statue, all looking sad and forlorn!
