Cow Parade

Posted on

Already a few weeks ago (and even now) come sighting sight and patience of all the people of the capital of Peru (Lima) this sample of cows (and other related) inorganic material (glass fiber I believe), on a normal scale, arranged in different points of our various cities or here called districts. Usually in squares, parks and pedestrian walkways. This dazzling exhibition of famous artists purpose is the sale of these works and whose fundraising will go with destination to the solution of the (targeted) poverty of many Peruvians. These cows, plastic, have over their body painting done by those artists, others have inlays of different materials such as coins for example, or others that are part of an inventive and creative mind: cow with two heads in the opposite direction, one that arises from a large ice cream cone, another made Grill, etc. Many of them are called vigilant, the curious gaze of passers-by, tourists and everyday workers; but to those who most calls the attention is to children of different ages, who are amazed by such a deployment of made fantasy art. I should point out that although it is a demonstration of current art, and whose collection is organized by some NGOs in coordination with the INC and the municipality of Metropolitan Lima, in addition to other local institutions, it should be (to my way of appreciating the fact) most hyped in order to generate the expected sales and healthy invest and soon the income from this activity. Works of art on three-dimensional figures and natural size of cows, called The Cow Parade are even today by different places.
