Nearly missed it, been tending the sick. Here’s a quick sad sheep:
although it looks somewhat (and delightfully) pig-like around the snout to me. There is no mistaking that fat tail though. Unless, of course… No. Consider it not. This is Victorian funerary statuary we’re talking about.
And here’s a quick link to wikipedia’s entry on sheep in religion and folklore, the only thing I could find at short notice that wasn’t almost entirely confined to Christianity.
Feeble effort, I know. I apologise.
