Flock of miniature sheep "invades" Penrith
Made from natural sheep's wool, more than 4,500 tiny sheep have been put on display to raise awareness of farming, as part of the Flock art project in Cumbria, U.K.
One of the key elements of the project is to promote the use of sustainable and biodegradable wool from sheep farmed in the Cumbrian fells as a natural alternative to man-made materials.
After Penrith, the exhibition will visit Farfield Mill in Sedbergh and the Sheep and Wool Centre in Cockermouth before arriving at Grizedale Visitor Centre in September.
A film titled Hefted, which deals with the theme of how sheep - and people - feel a sense of belonging to their landscape, will premiere alongside the art installation.
