We saw many animals of this ilk when we lived in Kenya back in the 1960’s and again in the 1990’s.

A ceramic artist here in Seattle recently had a display of his interpretation of different types of sheep horns.  This show of ceramic sheep horns was very striking.  My first impression was that they were rather gross – I kept going back to the local coffee shop (Grumpy D’s) to view them.  And I have grown to like them more and more.  Birthday and Christmas are coming  and I have decided to treat myself.  ……but the show is over.  I think I can find the artist though – after all, he does live locally.  The hunt is on.
