Background information in sheep posters
Female sheep are called ewes, males are called rams and young sheep are called lambs. Lambs are probably the most represented in sheep posters. It is actually ironic how little most of us know about sheep, given how deeply entrenched they are in human culture. They were domesticated between 11000 and 9000 BC and have been referred to by different cultures, religious texts and even astrology for thousands of years. Sheep posters do not have to be mere wall decor, but they can also hold significant meaning, which we will explore further later. Since these animals graze in fields and feed off of the grasses that grow naturally where they graze, you can bring a touch of nature into your domain with sheep posters. The flat fields where they graze and live are often called pastures. Sheep can also live in mountainous areas, as you can see in sheep posters like "Lambs Pastures in Meadow". This wonderful image is so serene and pretty, it will make your room pop and even make it seem bigger.
As already hinted at, sheep are raised for many purposes. The most important reason farmers raise sheep is for their wool, the thick fiber coat that is shaved off, or shorn, every year. Used to make clothing, blankets and other materials, you can see its beauty in plenty of sheep posters. Wool actually never stops growing, but only in domesticated sheep. For example, back in 2004, a Merino sheep named Shrek hid in a cave for six years so he would not have to get sheared. By the time he was cornered and given his long-overdue haircut on New Zealand national television no less, there was enough wool to make 20 mens' suits! These are just some of the interesting factoids or anecdotes you can work into a conversation when people ask you about your sheep posters.
Sheep posters and their importance
There is a very common misconception that sheep are stupid, defenseless and harmless creatures that mope about on hillsides doing not very much, except feed. They are good for two things alone, being eaten and producing wool. Sheep posters will show you and let you feel how this is rather untrue. The reality is that sheep are surprisingly intelligent, with impressive memory and recognition skills. They build friendships, stick up for one another in fights, and feel sad when their friends are sent to slaughter! So get yourself sheep posters as a reflection of your personality or even as a gift for your own friends. Anyone would be delighted to get something like "Last Days of Autumn" as their interior decoration.
