Title: Not a Creature was Stirring
Location: Uptown Park: Post Oak and West Loop South
Artist: Prudence Becker Allwein
Sponsor: Bob and Vivian Smith Foundation

Each Santa on Not a Creature was Stirring is an original design inspired by antique Christmas images. The artist explains her inspiration came from the fact that the proceeds from the cows go to benefit children, and Santa is the ideal giver of gifts to children during the holidays. The artist’s own children have benefited from the wonderful work done at Texas Children’s Hospital. Allwein claims, “It was a chance for me to give back.”

This cow was sold in the live auction conducted by Sotheby's on December 6, 2001 at the Wortham Center.
