The subject of “cows” is fascinating and a subject I have visited and revisited for over fifteen years. Objectified and worshipped by some cultures but vilified and abused by others. They possess, therefore, an intriguing duality and are, for me, a suitable metaphor for all that is good and bad in human advancement! Often I subtley subvert the subjects by changing the pattern on their hides or by adopting codes and hidden messages in the form of branding; for me these beasts are carriers of socio-political statements!
