Portrayed here is the greening of the earth and the arrival of spring lambs. The sheep has long been a symbol used in mythology, religion and in sacrifice.
Sheep are not silly creatures, as seems to be a fairly widely held misconception. Rather those I have observed, known and cared for have proved to be intelligent, funny, loving , endearing creatures who make great and loyal friends.
My beloved lamb, Mary followed us on walks and adored our duck; the two became inseparable friends. This needle felt rendition is a first attempt by me to create a wire framed animal but also a piece that remembers a beloved friend who was such a good and loyal companion .
