Purveyance conveyance

There are two pictures on the outside of Guss Meat. Actually one picture rendered (hey!) by two different artists. One is sort of pastoral, with an old-fashioned truck carrying animals resigned to their fate to the abattoir:

The other one was painted by an artist with a cruder technique. The truck is more modern and sort of… drafted rather than drawn, and the distortion of the animals conveys a sort of anxious and queasy desperation that the other one does not:

Then again, when I look back at the first picture, I start to wonder if the expression on the animals’ faces is one of silent judgment rather than simple acceptance of their fate. I can’t tell. Which picture do you like better?

  1. I like the first one best. It reminds me of old book illustrations. Like the book, “The Happy Man and His Dump Truck”.
