Painting of autumn cattle parade descent from alpine pastures. Appenzell Museum, Switzerland.
Painting of the traditional Swiss autumn cattle parade, a festive descent from alpine pastures: "Appenzell, Auserhodische. Alpfahrt. Schwägalp mit, 7 Hütten - Santis Schwebebahn - Rossfall." by Johann Baptist Zeller (1877-1959). In this living tradition, cows are adorned with flowers and bells ring festively as the farmers walk alongside in their finest traditional costumes. Appenzell Museum, which is in the town hall, shows a cross section of the Swiss Canton's history and culture. Appenzell village is in Appenzell Innerrhoden, Switzerland's most traditional and smallest-population canton (second smallest by area).Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
