The cowboy boots made me think of Cow Parade. I was in Copenhagen in 2006 when they had a Cow Parade event. We didn't know what was going on, but it looked like fun. Those boots have the same kind of look.

Then you might also enjoy these artistic pelicans that are located in and around the Galveston Bay community of Seabrook.

I haven't encountered all of these as some are off the beaten path, and some may have been removed (I know at least a couple of the sponsoring businesses are no longer around).

Hubby and I visited a museum near Muscat in Oman a few years ago. They had some ibexes outside done in a style reminiscent of Cow Parade. I took some photos but didn't upload them, so I can't share them with you.

You don't have to. I found them. Scroll down a few screens on this site.

Painted animals (and stuff) seems to have become a global phenomenon.

I've seen cows in Prague (including a truly magnificent Swarovski crystal covered one), bears in Berlin (over and above their city symbol status), pigs in Bath, I'm fairly certain that I saw Rhino's in Reading (but it may have been somewhere else), Wallace and grommet AND buses in London and ducks in Liverpool. I need to get a life.

MMF used to collect these (well, he'd photograph them - he didn't take them home)

'Air Dancers' that have escaped their original adertising locations in high winds are often found in incredibly isolated location in the desert.

In the UK celebs were asked to design a theme for Wallace and Grommit statues which were then painted in the design, exhibited in various locations around different cities for the summer, and later auctioned off for charity. It apparently raises quite a lot of money.

I believe there are other statues that have been designed, exhibited and auctioned in this way too, not least Shaun the Sheep figures.
