This is becoming a tradition in Bristol (England). After a trail of Gromit sculptures in 2013 that helped to raise £5 million for Bristol Children’s Hospital, there is a new art trail of 70 giant painted sculptures of Shaun the Sheep, another character created by .
The sheep, each sponsored by a company, have been decorated by celebrities and designers and dotted around the City. You can see them until the 31th August.
At the end of the summer, they will be auctioned to raise money for sick children in hospitals across the UK.
Last week-end, I had the chance to see a few.
