Two sheep and a pig eating from an upturned trough. The pig is signed: Jason Thomson 2001. All the animals are arranged on the grass in groups according to their species. They can also act as seating, or play objects, for children. They are naturalistic, but stylised, with considerable attention given to surface details.
