Artist Billie Grace Lynn's Mad Cow sculpture has at its frame a bicycle which looks like a Harley Davidson-style motorcycle; on top of the bike frame is the skeletal structure of a cow. The piece by Billie Grace Lynn is a critical examination of our relationship to fossil fuels, which stems from the fact that cow feed is fertilized with fossil fuels.

Taking that idea of a cow's bones containing fossil fuel, Billie Grace Lynn goes further by suggesting that we serve as a type of combustion engine for the vehicle. Mad Cow is a visually compelling piece that offers a re-interpretation of the world around us. Whether you like the piece simply for the sculpture or for its critique, the piece is incredibly interesting.
