Moooo...

I am glad that Cow Parade gives people the opportunity to "play" with their national symbols. Last year I was in Barcelona and after I saw Cristobal Colon (or Cristopher Colombus if you like) on his column I run into Cowlombus and I was happy to discover that no man is safe from the cow menace. :-)

This is "Cow-lias" (Cow Tsolias , evzon, or Cow Helias, I am not sure) by artist Athanasios Papatheodorou. Every resemblance with the guards at Constitution Square is far from incidental :-)

Geia sou, Athina. Cows on the loose again! That's Melbourne, Lisbon, Athens & where else?
While the threatened bird-flu pandemic has gone quiet, it seems that the arty cows have moved in! This one is certainly patriotic!
