It has been said that Australia “has ridden the sheep’s back” in terms of export wool sales. Resilient and drought hardy, sheep thrive in diverse climates.
This sheep started with a back bone and legs of re-bar on which consecutive cut pieces of corrugated roofing iron were secured with pop rivets. Each piece was cut with a nibbler and are spaced about 4-5 cms apart. The feet are secured to an angle iron frame sitting under the mulch to give the structure rigidity. The old corrugated iron varies in colour due to weathering. Altogether it is quite life like and pleasing to look at from our kitchen window.
