image for Giant sheep to be "Angel of the West"
The supermodel for the "Swansea Sheep" with an IQ three times than of a human supermodel

Yet another art commission has been, er, commissioned, this time for the West of the country in Welsh Wales.

The "Swansea Sheep", dubbed the Angel of the West - or to give its official title - shaggus wasteus publicus moneycus - was designed by a 4-year old child, and will be erected on the site of the Dr Who series in downtown Swansea.

The 4-year old child was chosen from a rather weak list of extremely wealthy artists - Damien Hirst's "Tardis in Chloroform", Tracey Emin's "Unmade Billie Piper" and Salvador Dali's "Metamorphosis of Narcissus" were the runners-up. However, Hirst wanted £7 million for his pile of crap, Emin wanted £1 million for her's and the Tate Modern in London told the Whitehall Mandarin who came up with the idea to, in no uncertain terms, 'bugger off'.

The Swansea Sheep, which celebrates all that is sacred to the average Welsh Farmer, will stand over 20cm (8 inches) tall and cost in the region of 90p. It is due for completion by the artist, Nerys Jones, tomorrow afternoon, when she gets home from nursery.

It is expected to be installed the day after tomorrow at a civic reception hosted by the Swansea Council, who can always be relied upon to come up with some wheeze as an excuse for a boozing session.

Make Steddyeddy's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
