Eatery’s Neon Cow Sign May Go to M+ Museum

On 28/08/2013 by Site Default

An old neon restaurant sign in the shape of a large cow may become the latest acquisition of the M+ museum in Hong Kong.

The sign is a beacon leading the hungry towards Sammy’s Kitchen, a restaurant that serves Hong Kong-style western food. But more than that, the sign has been a part of the Sai Ying Pun neighborhood for more than three decades and has become a visual signifier for the community. The Yip family, owners of Sammy’s Kitchen, have recently come under fire for the sign as the government cracks down on illegal structures. Originally destined for the rubbish heap, the neon cow now has hope of gaining a new life as part of the collection of the future M+ museum.
