MRS DARLING – Head of a Zwartbles Sheep

Mrs Darling is a pet zwartbles sheep who lived with us for over two years.  She would come into the house, loved horse feed, pasta and bread.  Basically any food other than sheep pellets!  She would wonder around the garden eating all the flowers and grass and then wondered why she was banished to the stable at night rather than our house!

She became old and wise, and had an amazingly expressive, which I would constantly try and draw and photograph in order to try and capture her spirit.  Sadly, I still have not managed to create a good drawing of her.

Before she died, I decided to create a  sculpture of her face, in clay and so found myself in the yard for hours and hours and this is what I produced as a bronze wild life sculpture, even though Mrs Darling was more of a pet!  Certain features I have exaggerated like her extraordinary ears which were always moving in opposite directions to one another.  Her huge staring eyes, always watching your every move in total silence.  The wonderful textural contrast from her black smooth face to her big thick body of fur.

Mrs Darling died soon after I completed the sculpture which broke our hearts and many who knew her in Dorset!  She was a special old girl!

As  a life size bronze sculpture, I have positioned it on a thin, dark metal stand to minimise distraction from her face.  Its at eye level or just below and looks very striking in the corner of a room with contemporary or antique surrounds, or in the garden or a court yard.

The sculpture can be cast as a limited edition of 25 in bronze resin.
