Original. Presented in a 16" x 20" acid free archival museum mat. When Willette started the magazine La Vache enragee (The Angry Cow), Roedel contributed several designs. The name of the publication refers to the artists' life: "manger de la vache enragee." This is a french idiom for "Seeking out a miserable existence." Clearly, this mock-serious design pokes fun at the expense of its subject.
