About this piece:
Bovine Book I is one piece in the Bovine Reliquary series exploring the place of the domesticated cow in our American farming culture. Each piece in this series contains dairy relics, objects from the past elevated to holy status. This piece pays homage to my father, who had been in the dairy business for many years.
