Designed from an original painting by Andria Linn entitled “Welcome To This World,” Birtha is about life, love, rebirth and giving. The life-size cow sold at auction for $10,00 benefitting the NC Children's Hospital.
Birtha is wrapped in flowers that have “spirits” bursting out in an array of colors and energy. There are cocoons entwined in life branches of cherry blossoms that symbolize newness and expectation for what life’s challenges bring us. The overall representation Birtha brings us is refreshment and joy for life.
This life-size cow’s sponsorship was completely funded by donations raised by the artists through 64 “Birtha backers.” This makes her the first cow in CowParade history to be sponsored by a group of individuals rather than a company or organization.
