Highland Cow

Highland Cow

A beautiful handmade depiction of a Highland Cow enjoying some wild Barley during a break in the weather. Using layered and shaped paper adds a sense of depth (3D) and animation to the piece.


The unique layering of the hair and features adds an interesting twist to the design; it allows the picture to change as the light and your perspective does.


This is one of a series of artworks (Scottish Highland Series), each depicting an animal synonymous with the Highlands.


This comes set in a crisp and modern white box frame that can be desk or wall mounted and comes with free delivery.


Richard Danson has carefully designed each piece, cutting and assembling them at his home in Nairn (Scotland).


Note: Images are taken fully glazed so the image holds its shape, this means there may be some glare and reflections in the images. The colours and tones of the physical items may vary compared to digital or printed images.

  • Dimensions and Construction

    The art is mainly constructed from cut card carefully glued together by hand. Foam pads are used to space the pieces of the art to add an additional sense of depth, and a drop of beaded ink added to the animal’s eye to bring her to life.


    This crisp and modern white picture frame is made from strong acrylic with a glass face. It has a standing arm for displaying on a desk which folds away when wall hanging.


    Overall Frame Dimensions: Height: 22.5cm Width: 27.5cm Depth: 3.5cm


    Visible Image Size: Height: 14.5cm Width: 19.5cm
