MRS DARLING – Head of a Sheep (Life-size)

Mrs Darling is a pet zwartbles sheep who we have had with us for over two years now.  She comes into the house, loves horse feed, pasta, bread – basically any food other than sheep pellets!  She wonders around the garden eating all the flowers and grass.  She then wonders why she is banished to the stable at night rather than our house.  She feels more human than sheep!

She is old and wise, and has an amazingly expressive face to go with it.  I am constantly drawing and photographing her face in order to try and capture her spirit which I have found hard!  I then decided to create a  sculpture of her face, in clay and this made  stay in the yard for hours and hours either with my camera, clay or pad and pens.  As a result, I produced this bronze wildlife sculpture of her head  even though  she is more of a pet!  Certain features I have exaggerated.  For instance, her extraordinary ears which are always moving in opposite directions to one another.  Then there were her huge staring eyes, always watching your every move in total silence.  Lastly, there was the wonderful textural contrast from her black smooth face to her big thick body of fur.

This is a life size bronze resin sheep’s head, which I have positioned 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.  Its looks great with contemporary or antique surrounds, or in the garden or a court yard.  Its not a wildlife bronze sculpture  which you need to walk all the way around so it can be positioned in a corner or with front view.
