Cow and Calf

-A A +A
c. 1980. Northeast corner of E. University and Hubbell avenues

A sculptured mother cow and her calf are posed in front of an anonymous contemporary brick building. Though twice normal size, their scale seems purposely difficult to sense, with the neutral wall behind, reinforced by clipped shrubbery, and the finely mowed lawn upon which they stand.
