The Cow for Woerden – The proces

The board of the Foundation ‘Cow for Woerden’ wants a sculpture of a cow (Indian granite) achieving full size model and give it to the inhabitants of the municipality of Woerden. For this great project ArtistiX was able to deliver the rough stone. There has been chosen for a stone of Indian granite with dimensions of 2.6 × 1.6 × 1.6 meters and a weight of 22.000kg! The stone is checked by ArtistiX on location in India on suitability for the project. In January 2014 the stone was delivered to Arte Ateliers Kamerik.

Gaetane Scholten Arte Studios designed the image of the cow. With the help of twenty volunteers they almost daily worked on the granite block. After months of hard work more than nine tons of granite has been removed. The sculpture ‘Cow for Woerden’ will be moved to its final place to the square for the library in Woerden. Therby the artwork becomes the ‘Cow of Woerden’.
