At the start of 2014 the small Roman Sheep was carved from a single block of Tadcaster limestone and given a great plinth worthy of a celebrated 2nd Century AD Roman Hero.
This sheep became the inspiration for the much larger Polykleitos Sheep (see below) .

Polykleitos Sheep was exhibited in 2014 at the Summer Sculpture Exhibition, Newby Hall, Ripon.
In 2015 I was commissioned to make Riache Sheep for a garden in Wensleydale. The Sheep was inspired by the 5th century BCE Riache bronzes, and the plinth bu the Doric Temples at Paestum.
