Watch the Cows about Cambridge auction live online
The auction of the cow sculptures that adorned the 10-week Cows about Cambridge art trail can be viewed here.
The large cow sculptures are being auctioned off to benefit Break, the children’s charity.
There are about 30 bidders in the room, with another 170 people registered to bid online.
Celebrity auctioneer Charles Hanson is hosting the auction at the Graduate Cambridge Hotel.
The life-size sculptures start from £1,000 each. They were designed by regional and national artists.
The mini moos that also formed part of the spectacular trial will not be auctioned as they will be returned to the schools and groups that created them - a lasting legacy of the summer the cows took over Cambridge.
Between June and September, the entire herd of 90 sculptures attracted ande delighted visitors to Cambridge, thanks to trail organisers Wild in Art working in collaboration with principal partner Cambridge BID, official travel partner Thameslink and Break. The charity works with children and young people on the edge of care, in care and leaving care.
The Cambridge Independent has been proud to be media partner for the trail, sponsoring the cow Sir Isaac Mooton.
