painting of Lambs on a sheep farm.


In Zoe Cameron Blog by Zoe Cameron

Having heard on the news this morning that an Abattoir in Yorkshire was being investigated for cruelty to sheep and lambs, (kicking them in the head) . I thought I would post details from two larger paintings , that honour these beautiful animals.

1.‘Cornish sheep farm’ . I painted this in January, where the lambs and sheep are happy, well cared for and warm .

2.‘St Breaca Madonna and Child’ detail, a painting made for the Godolphin Chapel Breage.

The image of the lamb is a symbol that dates back to early Christian Art , eg The lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world, a sacrificial offering, John the Baptist, and many more references .
