The Visible Cow

This is one of three identical models of the "Visible Cow" that were built for Agriculture Canada and the University of Winnipeg. In painting the model, the  proper colours of the internal organs were obtained by visiting a slaughterhouse and photographing the actual parts of a real cow! We stop at nothing to do accurate research here at Small Art Works! The left lung and left half of the heart were left off and pinned to the wooden base for greater clarity and easier viewing of the interior details. The cow measures about 14 inches from nose to tail.
