An impressive 1980 bronze sculpture by Nicolas van Ronkenstein is an apt tribute to the dairy heritage of Velden (a village about 6kms out of Venlo). I doubt the milkmaid was amused.

It is wonderful!
Ayush Basu: I liked the connection to the local past, Ray.
That's a terrific homage!
Ayush Basu: The local history connection really anchors this installation to this village, Elizabeth.
Superbe sculpture.
Ayush Basu: Merci, Martine.
I have this vision of the artist asking her to be kicked over and over till he gets it right. smile
Ayush Basu: Haha, now there's a thought, Larry!
That's a well done sculpture. The milkmaid indeed doesn't look amused... smile
Ayush Basu: Not a sight we would see in India, Sudipto! grin

A strange subject to choose for a sculpture but it does work well.
Just this type of event started the famous Chicago fire.

It is a fine sculpture Ayush
A very good sculpture, I garee, the milkmaid would have been furious.

Have you ever studied how thick and heavy a cow's bones and legs are? It is no fun being kicked by a cow. I know. Yes, my farm cousin thought I should milk their wild cow, without her being spanned. What did I know about milking, spanning and wild cows? So I just grabbed hold of the teat and got kicked in the ribs.

Interesting subject for a sculpture - trust the Dutchies to come up with it.

The cow doesn't look very amused either!
Ayush Basu: Haha, I am sure you are right, CherryPie.
