Sorting through photos of cave paintings, I could clearly imagine what a shock there would be if an ox from the Ice Age suddenly appeared in a market in Oxford. This ox has been decorated with running bulls, a bear, an ibex, a mammoth, a penguin, a rhinoceros, a stag and ten horses.

Grateful thanks to all who have helped – especially Tereza Horscek and my sponsor


After the trail ends, most of the life-sized oxen (and a selection of mini oxen) will be sold at a hoof-biting live auction to raise crucial funds for Sobell House Hospice.

The lucky new owners will then take their moo-gnificent ox to its forever home.
