Cows, bulls, calves and oxen
An ordinary cow? Can an ordinary cow also be an interesting one ?
We think however that this rather trivial theme has many sides to explore. Not only its typical physical aspects catch the eye or the differences between the races, our cow is a major supplier of nutrition.
In Kenia and Tanzania cows not only get milked but the Masai also drink their blood and even the urine is used to counteract acidification of the cows’ milk.
The animal was and still is honoured as a manifestation of one or other divinity, whether as the Egyptian Hathor or as the Minoan bull of Kreta. And who isn't aware of the holy cows in India ?
In many countries cow manure is gathered and dried to be used as fuel. Cattle horns are used as a cup, as powder box or helmet decoration...
In Spain and in the south of France, local varieties of the corrida recall a long gone religious experience, roots going back all the way to the shamanic prehistory. American cowboys speed from one bullfight to another rodeo.
Are cows boring? We don't think so.
