Border Fine Arts – Classic Collection – ‘Root & Grain/Holstein-Friesian’ a limited Edition number 91 of 400 crafted by the artist Ray Ayres at the Langholm Studios in Scotland.
For generations farmers have overwintered their livestock by feeding them home-grown cereal, like oats, barley and wheat, plus root vegetables, like beet, turnip, mangelwurtzel and potatoes. On this scene, the feed has been laid out by the root and grain feeder along the feed barrier and, while the farmer is tidying some of the stray feed closer to the cattle, the farm cat has come to watch – distracting the cows from their ‘root and grain’.
Sculpted by Ray Ayres.
Each figurine comes in a branded box and contains both a ‘Certificate of Quality’ signed by the Painter and Founder and a ‘Certificate of authenticity’ signed by sculptor.
