Icelandic Ewe Looking Back at Lamb

Colin's Creatures Porcelain Sheep Figures, Faroe Island Family


It is stunning to watch the long fur of the Faroes blow in the wind. This Faroes family of sheep have creamy wild long hair. The ram has light brown horns, and the ewe looks head on while her lamb is turned to the side, gazing. The fur on this trio is mohair.

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