"Sheep may safely graze"
Chris: Yes they might but it is unlikely this one will
Ha... That's just so out of place it's funny. What is it made of? A cute sheep though.
Chris: This is part of the Sean the Sheep festival in Bristol Jacquelyn, they are separately coloured by various artists and placed around the city before being auctioned for charity

Haha - Alan will be enthusiast! I don't know this cathedral. Lol at Ray! Lol at the sign 'Please don't climb'!
Chris: This is situated outside the church of St Mary Redcliffe Philine.

Wiki says - St. Mary Redcliffe is an Anglican parish church located in the Redcliffe district of Bristol, England. The church building was constructed from the 12th to the 15th centuries, and it has been a place of Christian worship for over 900 years. The church is renowned for the beauty of its Gothic architecture and is classed as a Grade I listed building by Historic England. It was famously described by Queen Elizabeth I as "the fairest, goodliest, and most famous parish church in England."
Hahaha these are wonderful
Chris: I think we should have decorated Alan Rolfes placed around the intimate nooks & corners of lovely Scumsville next year..

Hhehehe. I have a photo of this, too (and 79 others) St Mary Radcliffe was a very pleasant surprise; a wonderful exterior and interior. I have a photo of the interior tomorrow. It has a nice cafe, too; good value for money.
Chris: Quite so. Presumably you will be bidding for them all at auction?

Oh, I have visited St. Mary Recliffe with Lisl and Michael, but, sorry, sorry, I don't recall t h i s entrance. I took some fine photos of its glorious interior. I like the sheep exhibition in Bristol, and I hope Alan will show 78 others!
Chris: If I had the money I would buy all of them for Alan and put them all in his house & garden when he is at work

A wonderful idea, they could mow his lawn, care for the garden and clean the rooms, but his dear Miss Tripod- Carrier is also a good helper for his tools and other essentials.
Chris: I am full of good ideas Philine
I love these art auctions. I bought a chair years ago done in the same manner, with many artists each painting a chair....

This painting reminds me of the painting on Delft China.

Oh, there's a building behind the sheep. Very fancy work!
Chris: I think this sheep has been deliberately painted to resemble Delft
What a wonderful sight Chris. Doing a similar thing that they did with cows a while back
Chris: In Bath we had pigs too
What great fun, have you ever watched the film, we did with our Granddaughter and it is hilarious, even for adults.
Chris: Oh yes - these things are wonderful

An interesting link about Willow sheep: http://shauninthecity.org.uk/news/meet-artist-rhiannon-southwell

What inspired your Shaun design?

He’s inspired by the classic Willow pattern from one of my plates. The idea came to me on a visit to Tyntesfield House - they have an amazing collection of beautiful blue and white china, and I thought Shaun would look fabulous in Willow! I've also added the Clifton Suspension Bridge and the iconic cranes from the Harbourside to bring Bristol into the design.
Chris: And every sheep is differently themed..
What is it? Delft china sheep?
Chris: They're all plastic Tom but this one is painted as if it is a piece of Delft chinaware
quite the diva...
Chris: It is a celebrity Larry
Awe! I just love those!
