I also have a wide angle image of this golden cow with some people.

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

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

The cow in this photograph was created by Lumin Christi College. They named it “Let’s Mooooooove Ahead Together”. On its back is an abstract depiction of the “Cityside” and “Waterside” parts of Derry joined by the new Peace Bridge. It was painted by artist Sinead Smyth.

Ebrington Square was formerly the parade ground of Ebrington Army Barracks. Under the guidance of Ilex (the local Urban Regeneration Company) the parade ground has been transformed into a public open space. Gradually the buildings around it are being renovated and finding new uses.


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.

    Lovely George. Great color and great capture… I can almost feel how smooth this is.

  • Sandra,
    Thank you. I am not sure what it is that makes this one look to me like something that should have been in an Egyptian Pharaoh’s tomb.

    I love the COW PARADE and I’m glad that it is going on, so I have the chance to meet the cows on my travelling!
    Perfect capture and nice art on cow!

    Nice one!
    You might want to have a look at my golden cow. She was at the Cow Parade at Bordeaux (France).

  • MarieJo,
    Thank you.
    Yes they clearly come from the same mould – but yours is jewel encrusted!
    I agree with what you said about yours having sad eyes. One of the things I liked about how the artist had painted this one was the large engaging eyes.
