Kempen Heath Family Straddling Distracted

Handmade Sheep Figurines by Colin's Creatures, Kempen Heath Family Straddling


This is��a tight knit��family, but I'm sure, in time, the little one will venture out on her own. They always do! The ewe's head and legs are porcelain and the lamb is made entirely of porcelain. The ewe's cast stone body is covered with a luxurious woven mohair and the lamb's fur is the softest.

All my creatures are handcrafted in my Asheville, NC studio using porcelain, castable stone and imported woven fur from the Steiff company in Germany.

Size: 5 1/2" Tall


Breed Description
The Kempen Heath Sheep (Kempische Heideschaap) is a very rustic and self-sufficient breed, which thrives on poor heath vegetation and is used primarily for land management in the central Netherlands. Changes in agricultural methods in the 20th century almost led to the Kempen's extinction, but an organization was formed in 1967 to save them. In 2006, Slow Foods took the Kempen under its wing, creating a market for them and reviving interest in the breed.
