This painted cow is part of Derry’s Cow Parade in Ebrington Square, Derry.

Each of the cows in the parade was painted by a different artist. Each artist was paired with a community group and worked with them to identify a theme.

This one was created by The Gasyard Centre and Pilots Row Community Centre who named it The Shirt Factory Horn. Its theme is Derry’s shirt factories. The artists involved were Catherine Duddy and Mary Kennedy.

It is also the middle cow in my close-up of of Three Cows on Parade. This is one of three photographs that include this cow

The Cow Parade is said to be the largest participative art project in the world. Having been seen by 300m people world-wide it certainly has a claim to that title! In fact there are many cow parades.

The organisers provide plain white fiberglass cows – mostly in three characteristic stances – and artists and community groups in a local area come together to decorate their cow in a way that highlights a locally relevant theme.

There are twelve, or more of these cows in Ebrington Square and a few others scattered around Derry.
