Artist Description of Cow
Covering the cow in reclaimed sheet metal from the surrounding Durham tobacco legacy, the artists’ intent was to create the mosaic of Durham history.
These pieces of metal not only have a great visual content with their rich, weathered patina, there is also the historical element of the material that become important. Each piece of metal is riveted to the surface of the cow, incorporated into a woven pattern with newer metal to create a basket-type pattern.
