Ahimsa, the resting cow
Now on display at Victoriepark in Alkmaar until mid June.
‘Ahimsa’ is travelling through the Netherlands to honor and thank the cow for giving so generously for centuries. At the same time she refers to Mother Earth.
Meaning Ahimsa (short); nonviolence, to respect and honor life.
She welcomes everyone in her cirkel. When we regain an eye for ourselves and all that lives on this magical planet we will see that everyone contributes something valuable. By giving back to the land and the animals and to each other, by sharing, we will discover that there is a joy hidden within.
With the sculpture cow we want to be open to a new era, in which a harmonious and loving way of living and working together is paramount, a symbiosis between plant, animal, mankind and earth.
My gratitude goes out to my buddy Dirk-Jan Schrander (guitar builder/artist) who can do magic with steel, it was a joy working with him on the cow sculpture.🤍Working together
