While I in no way fetishize the cow, I have a certain respect for its nature, for its stillness and its eyes in particular.
Maybe the cow is an allegorical tool not to study value, which is the main way it is talked about by so many, but to study the nature of being a mammal, of being dumb prey–male or female. It is also a tool to study the commodity as being both sacred and disposable. In this respect, it an allegorical tool for studying the nature of erotic relationships and the particular forms of violence they can lead to when they are misused.
