Snuff Puppets in Holland

The life-size herd of Cows goes on the rampage: grazing on pot-plants, eating people’s hats, nuzzling children and occasionally getting spooked by passing traffic. Don’t stand too close behind them – you might get sprayed with wee!!

Hot on their heels is The Butcher who tries in vain to round them all up, an exercise in futility and craziness, as the Cows go where no real cows would ever dare.

The Cows were originally created in 1998 and have stomped all over the world ever since.
