AN ART COW FOR CONO KAAS: In 2012 the Beemster existed 400 years. That was extensively celebrated with all kinds of activities. CONO gave the command to eleven 'Noordhollandse' artists to make a happy cow. Katinka Krijgsman: "it was clear to me that the elements of 400 years Beemster there in had to be processed. Originally there was fishing, so from seafood to cow was a logical step. The scales are made flesh and dry feet were also important, therefore, wooden shoes and woolen socks. Beasts to be pampered and cultivated, hence the millstone collar and small hat. Keep the udders of naturally ... naturally."
