Amusing Toronto » Cows in the City

One of the most popular sculptures in Toronto is “The Pasture”, a group of 7 life-size bronze cows by Canadian artist Joe Fafard. Installed in 1985 in the heart of the financial district, their original pasture is right beside the modernist towers of the TD Centre designed by architect Mies van der Rohe but they have been relocated to across the road temporarily while work is done at the TD. Conceptually they have to be the best in the city and to see them surrounded by people at lunch hour only reinforces that – everyone seems to be able to relate to them!
