Swiss Cows


On our recent trip to Switzerland (a trip I haven’t yet written about, the editor within reminds me), we stopped at a service area that had a restaurant overlooking a typical Swiss landscape – a lake, surrounded by green hills dotted with cottages. But what caught our attention were a dozen cows, each painted differently and bearing the name of a sponsor.

We spent more time looking at and photographing the cows; the beauty of the surrounding landscape served only as a background.

  1. Holy cow!

    (Inner animal rights activist, however, disapproves. Did you find out if this is breathable paint? And how tortured the cows were when this was done to them?)

  2. Anita, those aren’t real cows 🙂 Parmanu, Atlanta too had a whole series of such paintings called the Cow Parade…some of them were really wacky. I’ll try to look up some snaps I took

  3. Hi Parmanu,
