Title: Peace Cow (CPESA 1002)
Location: Business Brief (Pty) Ltd, Johannesburg
Artist: Johan Kritzinger
Sponsor: CowParade

This cow was specifically commissioned for the 10 years of Democracy celebrations.
“Ten years of Democracy resulted in 10 years of freedom and freedom resulted in a declaration of peace in South Africa. Peace comes with wisdom and the white dove symbolically carries these ideas. The cow dressed as the Dove symbolises how the nation can carry the idea of peace. The national anthem depicted on the cow symbolises that all South Africans can and have helped carry the idea of peace and wisdom for the past decade, and into the years to come."

This cow was sold by Stephan Welz in association with Sotheby's auction on Wednesday 29 June 2005 at the Nedbank Head Office, 135 Rivonia Road, Sandton. Proceeds have gone to CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation to aid their plight in "Keeping more than Hope Alive". Please read the Auction press release should you want more information about the auction.
