Title: Tribal Funk
Location: Sam Houston Park-Upper: Bagby between McKinney and Lamar
Artist: Rigo Moreno
Sponsor: Reliant Energy

“Tribal Funk” is a twist of blending colors and shapes influenced by tribal cultures. The artist chose this design because of its symbolism. He used warm colors and the blending of the colors to symbolize anger and strength. He then showed how a transition from warm to cool colors creates a sense of calmness or ease. Rigo is trying to express the idea that someone who society labels as a menace for producing graffiti can contribute something very positive, as graffiti is just another type of artistic expression.

This cow was sold in Flight 7 of the internet auction hosted by that ran from January 5 to January 11, 2002.
