Cow Sculptures Made Of Cars ( art now )

Helsinki-based sculptor Miina Äkkijyrkkä’s purchases dozens of used vehicles from dealers around Finland and uses them to create enormous cow sculptures that look like the four-legged war machines used in Star Wars. Why cows, you ask? Well, her CV speaks for itself:
1965-1966 Equine College Ypäjä
1967-1968 Dairy Farming School of North-Savo
1969-1973 The School of the Fine Arts of Finland
It seems like an incredible career shift, however she never forgot where she started. By the way, if you check the “Models” section on her website, you won’t find any girls there – it’s nothing but cows.
