Product Details:

CowParade is the largest and most successful public art event in the world. Since 1998, CowParade events have been staged in over 50 cities worldwide including Zurich (1998, first event), New York City (2000), London (2002) and Tokyo (2003).
Over 5,000 artists worldwide have participated in CowParade - professional and amateur, famous and emerging, young and old.

Designed from an original painting by Andria Linn entitled “Welcome To This World”, Birtha is about life, love, rebirth and giving. The life-size cow sold at auction for $10,000 benefitting the NC Children's Hospital.

Birtha is wrapped in flowers that have “spirit” bursting out in an array of colors and energy. There are cocoons entwined in life branches of cherry blossoms that symbolize newness and expectation for what life’s challenges bring us. The overall representation Birtha brings us is refreshment and joy for life.

This life-size cow’s sponsorship was completely funded by donations raised by the artists through 64 “Birtha backers”. This makes her the first cow in CowParade history to be sponsored by a group of individuals rather than a company or organization.
