I did this sculpture for a local art competition and its very personal to me. The idea for my sculpture came to me about two years ago. I wanted to sculpt the Bible’s story of Pharaoh's dream of the seven cows. The seven fat cows in his dream symbolise wealth, health and prosperous times. The seven thin cows, on the other hand, symbolise famine, sickness, death an approaching crisis.The two sets of cows allude to opposite sides – positive and negative. It’s a universal theme that is as much applicable to the individual’s life as it is to global political, social or economic issues.
