Feeling sheepish about the referendum!

Voters ‘flock’ to see referendum artwork!

sheep2With Thursday’s independence vote the only topic of conversation all around the country, Leith-based artist Elaine Forrest has created a timely ‘discussion piece’ – a referendum sheep’s skull!

The sculpture is studded with 20,5000 Swarovski crystals and features both a Saltire and Union Flag. The price? £3500 – a real baa-rgain!

The artwork was commissioned by George Pirie Antiques for a referendum window at their Howe Street showroom.

George Pirie said: “It only went up last week but I’ve already had lots of customers come in to say how much they like it. It’s not meant to be political at all – it’s about history and celebrating an event.”

The skull, alongside other referendum-themed pieces, will be on display until this Friday – the day we’ll find out where Scotland’s future lies.

So hurry – ewe don’t want to miss it!
