A sheep with wool surrounded by strings.
Sheep have rich history in cultures around the world. Associations with religion and mythology as well as fables and folklore are plentiful. Portrait of the Artist as a Young Teacher II depicts a sheep with its fleece being pulled in every direction. The sheep stands awkwardly on ground made of puzzle pieces while it gazes upward with a flat facial expression, giving the viewer the impression that the sheep’s fleecing is out of her control.
