Provenance Delta's entry in the Cows on Parade - Atlanta 2003 art charity fundraising event. CowParade: The Cows - Atlanta in 2003.

From the Cows on Parade website: "The cow was named by Laura Markey, the Delta employee, "Name-That-Cow" contest winner. This air-bound bovine is a tribute to Delta's millions of customers who have flown so many miles with Atlanta's hometown airline. This incredible creation was a collaborative effort among many Delta employees, including designer Adam Pinsley who works in Delta's Corporate Identity department and Technical Operations' employees in the Welding, Paint and Interiors departments who transformed the cow into the wonderful Delta-livery motif you see. Artist: Delta Air Lines, Employee Collaborative Effort, Sponsor: Delta Air Lines, Inc." Modified by Delta TechOps in two weeks.
