It's quite cute, but sort of thrown in there. It would fit better in front of St. George's Market, they sell dead sheep in there. The heads were quite inconsistent in size. It is great for amusing passers by, I have watched people sitting on...More

This is a very amiable bronze sculpture, by Deborah Brown. Where the Victorian era statues of Belfast look down on you from towering plinths, these characters are on a level with you. Indeed, many people like to sit on the sheep to get their picture...More
