Title: Over the Moon
Location: Greater Houston Builders Association Building: 9511 West Sam Houston Parkway North
Artist: Lucy Wiley
Sponsor: GHBA Benefit Homes Project

Over the Moon was a ‘labor of love’ because it required the artist to cut the cow apart, three legs and the head were repositioned; the tail was reconstructed and placed high in the air.

The artist explains, “When I first heard of CowParade Houston, I immediately thought of the nursery rhyme, “Hey Diddle Diddle the cat and fiddle, the cow jumped over the moon.” I wanted to make a cow move through space and the sleeping cow seemed a natural complement to the theme.” This cow has a sister cow, “Mooon Dreams.”

This cow was sold in Flight 1 of the internet auction hosted by that ran from December 7 - 13, 2001.
