From afar, Toy Cow appears as a huge colorful cow sculpture. On closer examination, one sees it is made from an organized cacophony of hundreds of dolls, action figures and toys of every description. It’s as if some cosmic magnet pulled these colorful objects together to form a perfect cow. It incorporates everyday objects recombined in an extraordinary way.

The sculpture is constructed entirely of reclaimed toys permanently screwed onto an anatomically accurate wooden armature. Toy Cow makes people smile, especially children, who delight in finding their favorite toys. It provides a positive experience to aid in the healing
