Karoo sheep - life size
An incredible conversation piece! Inspired by the typical Karoo sheep of South Africa. Gorgeous on a lawn or inside your home. On itself, paired with a lamb or even in a herd. The sheep is a lovely piece of craftsmanship with thousands and thousands of beads combined with wire.
Unique wire art form of South Africa. The origins of wire art are most likely from rural Kwazulu-Natal. For many years, due to a lack of resources to buy proper toys, youngsters fashioned their own toys out of discarded wire coat hangers, tin cans and whatever else they could get their hands on.
The Karoo sheep is created by an artist of a fair trade organisation in South Africa. This company has a social mission of tackling unemployment and poverty in South Africa.
