I like the story behind it. Seems fitting. As for the piece itself, I’m struck by the rich color.

:-) Christy Lakelord Domino replies: "thank you so much! the colour was a bit of a pain, just because of how many went into the background. many many shades of reds, greens, yellows and purples. i also used a lot of complementary shading, to make it extra vibrant."

A beautiful image. Lush, detailed and sensitive. I don’t know whether Hindu psople do or don’t pierce the ears of the holy cows for earrings (or their noses either - always thought bull noserings an American custom), but I do know it was an Egyptian custom. Statuettes of the Goddess Bast in the NY museum had golden earrings in their ears. I know the Indian cows are often festooned with garlands of flowers.

:-) Christy Lakelord Domino replies: "hmm, i don’t know either, but then again, it wasn’t intended to be a direct image of a sacred cow, but more my friend as one. the piercings were intended to represent her own

thank you!"

I love this! It’s beautiful! The colour is really what grabbed me.
