These are like the Berlin bears. I need to showcase more of them. :)

I like this one. It gives the impression of neon. Nicely done.

I have seen this done with many animals. West Hartford is headquarters of Cow Parade, which promotes -- obviously -- civic festivals using local artists painting up cows. Frankly, by now I am getting kind of sick of painted cows. Though this horse is well done. If I were a female painted cow, I would be making eyes at this dashing example of equine masculinity.

As to the faceless mannequins, Lowell, I think the idea is to concentrate the customers' attention on the clothes. Maybe they could hire local artists to paint them up?

In Madrid was made a series of cow sculptures like that but horses have much more beautiful shape. Lovely urban horse!!

This one looks like Batman should be sat on its back... galloping off through the dark streets of Gotham City to battle crime.

Reminds me of Joni Mitchell's "...and the painted ponies go round and round..." But this is a horse, okay...

I like but I think the jury may still be out on this one.

Thank you. MB

I like it...a lot!
Yes, those old boots from yesterday are mine and my hubby's. They have been on quite a few round-ups.
