Here is a fine example of well-knownLancaster countyartist, Menno Shirk, whose primitive wooden hand-carved and painted primitive animals have been displayed in a Philadelphia museum. This was bought near Goodville, PA in the late 80's. The artist has signed and dated (1988) this charmingcow on the back.
