Produced on the occasion of Janine Antoni's Larry Aldrich Foundation Award exhibition, The Girl Made of Butter, Janine Antoni presents a new series of work focusing on the cow as subject and its metaphorical relationship to the mother. The new works are illustrated along with a group of related earlier pieces, and the three texts that run throughout the book are a Bahaman folk tale, the litany of Virgin Mary, and a prodigious list of products that are made from cattle by-products.
