Marshall St. Sheep

This sculpture now stands watch over Marshall St. in Holbeck, Leeds.


The artist is Antonia Stowe. From the artists website: "...4m in height. The legs are made from tubular steel and the carcass using a range of materials including rope for the woolly coat. The sheep head will have bright blue eyes. The project is about the story of the sheep that once grazed on the roof of Temple Works next door to Marshall Mill where it is to be sited. It aims in some way to reflect the ingenuity of the industrial revolution where engineering, creativity, intellect and hard labour developed areas of Leeds . Its contemporary stance reflects the recent amazing re-developmental transformation of this area into Holbeck Urban Village."
