Drawing on art and artefacts in the British Museum collections, Catherine Johns first describes the relationship between cattle and human society since prehistory. She goes on to present a pictorial survey, bringing together images of cows and bulls from different ages and cultures - from the ancient Egyptian cow-goddess Hathor and the great bull Nandi in Hindu belief to 18th century English porcelain cows- and exploring themes including religion, myths and monsters, species and breeds, cattle at work, and in art.
