Cow Sculptures Around the World (Part 1)

From a post on “Cow Parade” in nancysgifts:

The cow is an animal we all love. Cows are nurturing, whimsical, quirky, and never threatening. Cows provide the milk that fosters our development, and milk is the basis of beloved childhood treats like ice cream. In short, everyone loves cows!

Public sculptures on cows are found all over the world.  Here are just some of them:
