Bo Peep and her Sheep

Birchwood Forest Park, Warrington Cheshire Commissioned by Runcorn and Warrington Development Corporation

Sited near the rangers hut, Po Peep and her sheep were designed to encourage children to explore the park and find other amenties whilst searching out the sheep.

The other sheep were vandalised but Bo Peep and this sheep have survived for nearly thirty years.

Hannah Mudd posed for the work which was cast by Meridian Bronze Foundry in London. The sheep were cast in ciment fondue at Liverpool Polytechnic's Fine Art Department.
