Cows as Sculptors?

These aren't my photos, they were forwarded to me by friend Terry, who is keeping a low profile. Not only that, but the title to the post is also by him. I just couldn't pass up posting this (taken when there was a break in the rain here). Thanks, Terry! 

Edit: Terry says this is in Round Valley, a wonderful Park with shy cows in it that exists East of Mount Diablo.

I wonder what the real cow is thinking..

Rick said...

That looks equally like it could be "natural" or "artificial" (whatever the difference might be). It's pretty cool, either way.

Wow, I'd love to be walking along and suddenly spy this ... I have made some "constructions" up in the Catskills, they usually dissolve after 3-4 winters. It's nice to make them and watch them morph into...well nothingness.


do you like Goldsworthy? if so here's a link to a photo I took last summer.

That's lovely, Avid Reader...building things to watch them morph into nothingness. Yes, I like Andy goldsworthy's work quite a bit despite my impudent comment.

Eva- It's the cow Pygmalion.

Now I must go and edit as Terry is concerned that people know the location of the park.

Mary-

Of course, the Sawhorse is the character. I didn't see it until you mentioned it. Thanks for the reminder - I loved those books when I was a child.

It seems to me that the sculpture is more real than the alive cow!I think the wooden one is running! :)

Be Happy
