Blossom the Bull.

Blossom the Black Angus Bull

Field review by the editors.

Binghamton, New York

Near the entrance to Binghamton's Discovery Center, a large bull has been reincarnated as a flowery creature named "Blossom." The fiberglass statue, a Black Angus bull, is painted with large, bright flowers.

Blossom's previous career had been to hawk steaks from the roof of a restaurant in Vestal until he moved here in 2004. We see these bull statues all over the country -- moored to a steakhouse roof or attached to a trailer for promotional mobility. Blossom has been transformed more radically than most, perhaps in keeping with the region's lingering Woodstock tie-dye radiation. But we wonder -- do the flowers make Blossom less nightmarish to young children?

His closest spiritual bovine is probably the statue of Emily, Vegetarian Activist Cow, in Massachusetts.
