Holy Cow! What a Great Folk Art Papier Mache Cow

I love cows. The other day I found a Cow Identification book that I gave to my friend because she loves cows too. So I was excited to stumble upon this great Papier Mache Cow. I actually found several cow collectibles in this shop. Someone must have given up their cow collection. Their loss is a cow lover's gain! Let me tell you a little bit about this cow. She is BIG! She stands about 10 inches tall and is 18 inches long. She is hand painted and signed by the artist. I have never seen anything like it but research shows that a similar papier mache cow was used for advertising and one a bit larger sold on ebay for $200. She looks great in my studio but would be a wonderful addition to someone's cow collection.
