I am just back from a trip to The Netherlands. I was delighted to find that a Painted Cow, had gone on her holidays to the Floriade 2012 international Gardening Festival, near Venlo in the Province of Limburg.

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.

This one was in the Floriade 2012 international gardening festival near Venlo in the province of Limburg in the South East of The Netherlands. Having got use to finding in them in my home town, coming across this one was like bumping into a neighbour while on holidays.
