Hopefully nobody finds this too offensive...

A buddy of mine stationed in Iraq just found out his tour of duty has been extended another 6 months so he's obviously a "wee bit" down right now.  When asked if he needed anything added to a general care package we were sending he requested a sheep.  Well.  I mean come on...I couldn't help myself  Roll Eyes



He's about 3" long, needle-felted merino over wire armature.  That's the 82nd Airborne emblem tattooed on his butt BTW, my buddy's unit.

Wow, that's really well done (how did you do the emblem?? It's so tiny!)  I really like this project, since it's the little things in life that help lift our spirits, and I think that you are giving your friend a wonderful gift.  It's so hard to watch the destruction caused by this Iraq disaster, and it's nice to see a little ray of love come through and to remember that we're all human beings who love silly fuzzy things after all.

When I saw the sheep face, the laughter started, by the time the butt came into view, fell off the chair in hysteria.

Then picked myself up an thought on the social/political ramifications, meaning and found another level that brings this work to an art piece.

It is all at once funny and sad, silly and powerful.

Thanks for putting the "mature content" label on it.
