The Cow up a Tree is one of the best known sculptures of artist John Kelly. Born in London in 1965, John and his family migrated to Australia in the same year and he grew up in the Melbourne city area of Sunshine. He now lives in Ireland

The Cow up a tree is a 8-metres high sculpture made of 4 tons of bronze and it reproduces Dobell’s camouflage cows upside down, high in the branches of an Australian gum tree

This sculpture was not actually made in Australia. In 1999 Kelly was asked by the City of Paris to exhibit in a sculpture exhibition held on the Champs-Élysées to mark the millennium.

At the famous Coubertin Foundation, just outside Paris, Kelly created his iconic ‘Cow up a Tree’. This surreal sculpture was soon a Parisian sensation and was commented upon in worldwide media including in The Times, the Time magazine, the BBC and almost all the French media.

Did you know that this sculpture is actually one of the three in the edition. The second one is today in the MAMAC (Musee de Arte Moderne et Contemporain) in France.

Did you ever see a Moo Brew Beer label? Well John Kelly added his cow signature to this boutique beer brewery based in Tasmania. Check it out in one of the many pub in Docklands
