Design Inspiration

Using copper and silver coins, the artist has recreated the markings of a Friesian cow, overlapping each coin to create a textural finish. The artist has created similar, impactful designs for previous Wild in Art trails. The natural tarnishing of the coins is all part of the art piece.

C. Hoare & Co. is the UK’s oldest privately owned bank, founded in 1672. Former customers include Samuel Pepys and Jane Austen, while customers today benefit from traditional values and service excellence handed down through 11 generations of the Hoare family. Proud to be ‘good bankers and good citizens’, C. Hoare & Co. opened an East Anglia office in 2019.
