I will admit that I’m something of a cynic. It can take a lot to impress me, so when I was walking past Exeter’s Cathedral Green last week and spotted something that had a genuine wow factor I thought I ought to write about it.
I could see a marquee on the green so I turned my head out of curiosity as to why it was there and was confronted by a load of multi coloured animals assembled on the grass. Wondering, probably out loud, “What the hell IS that?” I walked over to find out.
The animals turned out to be a flock of more than 150 life sized resin sheep painted in styles inspired by famous artists such as Van Gogh, Picasso and Andy Warhol. They were decorated by small groups of pupils, aged 5-16, from local schools to celebrate the refurbishment of the Cathedral Green.
My normal, cynical view of things will resume in my next post.
