We visited the Yorkshire Sculpture Park recently, mainly to prepare for a forthcoming University of the Third Age visit among other things I needed pictures to publicise the trip. This seemed to me to sum up a lot of what the place is about. The Park's sheep are particularly fond of Henry Moore.
This has used up my quota of lamb chops for the year; there will be no more, I promise.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

A very well observed, composed and captured image, and what a great venue for Moore's work.

I think it's good that these youngsters should be exposed to 'Art' from the earliest age, she's obviously an enlightened mother. Developing their sensitive sides will make the meat more tender.

Yep, the YSP sheep are gradually mutating into seagulls. Watch out for your sandwiches when we have flying chops.

Whenever we are touring the landscape of the North East with our French friends they will comment on the pheasants, the rabbits, the hares, the sheep. And then start quoting recipes.

Very suspicious behaviour from these sheep. I bet they're on the lam.

I really like the interesting combination of nature and art, but the nature certainly wins out.

Such well behaved little lambs following mom's every step. I hope those children check the bottoms of their shoes before getting into their cars. This looks a lovely park. I love those statues, they look like you could push them together and they would fit tightly into one big shape.

The sheep aren't nearly as much of a problem there as the geese!

Quote: I really like the interesting combination of nature and art, but the nature certainly wins out.

It's a huge site, with the art spread out and lots of space in between. Room for art to breathe.

Quote: Just where the art should be..available to the public and the sheep

Precisely, in a well-balanced society.
Trev, thanks for the Tartan Sheep link, but it's a bit late for 1st April...
Cheers folks and thanks for some great comments.
