Icelandic Ram

Colin's Creatures Porcelain Sheep Figures, Faroe Island Family


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



Breed Description
The Iceland Sheep is a direct descendant of the sheep brought to the island by the early Viking settlers, in the ninth and tenth century and this is related to the Finnsheep and Shetland sheep. The natural colors vary from snow white through several shades of grey to pitch black as well as several shades of morrit to brownish black. Some individuals will also show mouflon, badgerface patterns with several combinations of color and patterns. Bi-colored individuals are also fairly common. I try to be consistent with how dark I make the ram, but it doesn't always work out that way. If you prefer the very dark ram that is shown with the family, please let me know and I will do so.
