Having spent the summer grazing in London and Bristol, 120 Shaun the Sheep sculptures were rounded up and flocked back to London to graze in and around the Covent Garden Piazza until Sunday 27th September, and then on the 8th October they will be auctioned off with the proceeds going to support Wallace and Gromit's Children's Charity. In the South Hall of the Grade II listed 19th Century Market Building there is an art installation of 100,000 white balloons by French artist Charles P├ętillon. There is a pulsating light running the length of the installation representing a slow heart beat and best seen when it gets dark. It doesn't look much until you get underneath it and look up and then all that white latex takes on eerie persona. http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y200/penpusher/13%202015/02%20Miscellaneous/17%20Shawn%2024Sep15/01.jpg~original http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y200/penpusher/13%202015/02%20Miscellaneous/17%20Shawn%2024Sep15/02.jpg~original http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y200/penpusher/13%202015/02%20Miscellaneous/17%20Shawn%2024Sep15/03.jpg~original http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y200/penpusher/13%202015/02%20Miscellaneous/17%20Shawn%2024Sep15/04.jpg~original http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y200/penpusher/13%202015/02%20Miscellaneous/17%20Shawn%2024Sep15/05.jpg~original http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y200/penpusher/13%202015/02%20Miscellaneous/17%20Shawn%2024Sep15/06.jpg~original http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y200/penpusher/13%202015/02%20Miscellaneous/17%20Shawn%2024Sep15/07.jpg~original http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y200/penpusher/13%202015/02%20Miscellaneous/17%20Shawn%2024Sep15/08.jpg~original http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y200/penpusher/13%202015/02%20Miscellaneous/17%20Shawn%2024Sep15/09.jpg~original http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y200/penpusher/13%202015/02%20Miscellaneous/17%20Shawn%2024Sep15/10.jpg~original http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y200/penpusher/13%202015/02%20Miscellaneous/17%20Shawn%2024Sep15/11.jpg~original http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y200/penpusher/13%202015/02%20Miscellaneous/17%20Shawn%2024Sep15/12.jpg~original http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y200/penpusher/13%202015/02%20Miscellaneous/17%20Shawn%2024Sep15/13.jpg~original http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y200/penpusher/13%202015/02%20Miscellaneous/17%20Shawn%2024Sep15/14.jpg~original http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y200/penpusher/13%202015/02%20Miscellaneous/17%20Shawn%2024Sep15/15.jpg~original Brian

Nice, someone has put a lot of work into those displays. I was just wondering, when was the last time I went to Covent Garden. It was 1977, as it was when Virginia Wade won at Wimbledon. Funny the things you remember :)

Personally, I think Shaun is unelectable - his policies are all woolly, and he comes over as sheepish.

Nice photos Brian, and thanks for posting them. I can't remember the last time I went down to the "Smoke" as we called it, no doubt from the days when smog made it impossible to even see the other side of the road, and most folks wore masks. Jim Lincoln .7

Nice photos Brian We managed to catch up with some of the Shauns during a day out with family in Bristol, but they look pretty amazing "en masse" in Covent Garden. Paul F
