cow cuts

I recently did this picture as a gift. It is rendered in ink and pretty large (24×36 inches). It was an interesting project to do because ALL the references that I could find had contradictory information on them. Some had cuts broken up into the dozens- in French, Spanish and English- but the dashed divisions were drawn with no consistency, even if they were in the same language.
Fascinating to view an animal through that lens. Maybe I will make another with some tiny animal like a mouse or caterpillar divided up for the chopping block in the same way? any ideas?
