Tasteful, warm and intuitive, the Sheep lives a quiet life of creativity and compassion. 

The Electric Sheep is a nod to a Philip K Dick sci fi novel ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep’.

It takes inspiration from the ancient art of applying paper cut designs to lanterns that dates back to the Song Dynasty (960-1279). The sheep has rounded horns that are both consistent with the “Year of the Ram” and the favoured breed of sheep in Australia: the Merino. The artist invites you to walk beneath the 2.5m tall sheep lantern.
