A rather amusing addition to a suburban balcony in Melbourne. This artificial sheep looks like it's ready to jump ship, so to speak. As "Australia was built on the sheep's back", it is a cute tribute to one of our staples of economic success.

For a century, the wool industry gave Australia one of the highest living standards in the world. The economy rode high on wealth from primary exports. By the 1950s, wool was synonymous with the Australian way of life.
