A very long time ago, my wife Robin and I were walking through a Flea Market at the outskirts of Paris and standing right on the sidewalk of rue des Rosiers was a life size sheep, made by the famous French Sculptor, Xavier Lalanne for the equivalent of $5000 and without any hesitation, I told my wife to forget it. For whom was I to predict that what a Xavier Lalanne sheep would bring years later (made the same mistake with some cars, but much more serious). Ever since then, I have been seeking an affordable alternative, but there was always something out of scale, or just plain weird about them.
The sheep you see here is hand-made in America, by an artist and has the greatest face and wonderful proportions. Virtually impossible not fall immediately in love. Constructed in resin, or in solid bronze with real fur (as shown in this listing). And yes, they also function as a stool for extra seating.
