Weather Figures


Type Sculpture

     Two standing painted fibreglass figures. Male shepherd (Dai) holding wearing coat and cap, holding lamb under left arm with another lamb over his right shoulder, one sheepdog lying at his feet and another jumping up. The female figure (Myfanwy) is wearing a hat, shawl and apron with animals at her feet. She appears to be holding flowers in her right hand and a basket with her left.
          Apparently the figures turn according to barometric pressure.
