The Big Cow(s)

For almost 50 years Helsinki based sculptor Miina Akkijyrkka (that's her in the first photo) has been working with cows and on dairy farms, in their care as well as using them as a muse during her career as an artist. On her website, the section listed as models shows photo of cows. Miina purchases old vehicles from dealers and wreckers around Finland, cutting them up and reshaping them into monstrous sized cows (similar to something you'd expect to see in Star Wars).
