Calle Larios in Málaga on the Costa del Sol in Spain is a busy shopping street. You will always see loads of shoppers and street mimes along the way, but now there are 40 goats, posing for your artistic pleasure.
40 local artists were given a project by SUR newspaper in Málaga, Spain.
Their task was for each of them to produce a colorful and artistic goat, in a project aimed at promoting the caprine industry in the province of Málaga.
The central shopping street, Calle Larios, is now home to 40 life-size models of the Málaga goat, all artistically painted in individual style. They will remain there until October 20th for the pleasure of passersby.
At the opening of the display, passersby were able to see artists putting the finishing touches to their creations.
In the Málaga area, the caprine industry has a turnover of 90 million euros a year. There are reportedly around 300,000 goats of the Málaga breed in Spain of which 200,000 are located in the province of Malaga, producing milk, cheese and meat.

Sur (in Spanish) reported that Juan Manuel Micheo of the Association of Málaga Goat Breeders said at the opening:
"We need to identify Málaga goats in the same way that they identify Jaén's olive oil or in Huelva the Iberian cured ham."
