The oil-on-canvas mural “Cattle Days” was painted in 1942 by Lew E. Davis for the Treasury Section of Fine Arts. The mural hangs in the lobby of the historic post office in Marlow, Oklahoma. It shows four cowboys in a corral branding cattle. One is standing with a lasso and several cows. The other three are squatting down, holding a cow which is about to be branded.
