About the cow figurine
Partying with Pi-Cow-Sso cow figurine is one of the most chromatic statues of the CowParade Museum Edition. Allison Gregory painting comes mainly in several shades of pink and red with a twist of other vibrant colors. It is evident that Pablo Picasso painting work and Cubism influence led the artist creativity to achieve such an atypical cow sculpture. By the way, Allison Gregory was the only painter who designed four cows for the Austin Cow Parade. Henceforth, Allison Gregory’s cow “Partying with Pi-Cow-Sso” is part of the collectibles of the official Museum Edition.
This cow figurine is the replica of the life-size bovine displayed at the Austin CowParade exhibit in 2011. It features a large cow grazing. Such as several other masterpieces of the collection, Pi-Cow-Sso mammal “name involves a play on words to the famous artist Picasso. It always comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and a soft dust bag.

About Austin CowParade event
A showy herd of cow sculptures stood on Austin, TX streets for the CowParade event during Fall 2011. Local known and emergent artists dressed up more than 70 fiberglass art cows that occupied public spaces as part of a fundraiser for the Superhero Kids at Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas. In November 2011, CowParade auction raised about $1.5 million. Two of the cows were sold $150,000 each which was unexpected compared to a price average of $7,500 per cow at that time.
The Spanish painter and sculptor Pablo Picasso was one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century. His free and eccentric spirit, and complete disregard for criticism to his work characterize Picasso’s artistic style. His modern approach to painting was far ahead of his time. Picasso was arguably the first artist to have such a profound impact on the art world.
