The Cow Eaters

Toogoolawah artist Elizabeth Poole currently has a number of her much loved "cow" sculptures in the gallery. Made from copper and galvanised wire twisted into unique and quirky images, the sculptures are a real delight. Cow Grass, Cow Flowers and Cow Eaters are just some of the titles for the works.
In these wire constructions Elizabeth uses the cow as a metaphor for the voiceless and helpless in our society. The cow is often used as a cute and comical image, while in reality it is treated as a mere commodity.
