Reader Mark Shockley sent me some images of this unusual art installation to share with you: Grazing sheep made of old rotary telephones. Although he hadn't known who or where they came from, a little research uncovered the fact that this is was an installation in the Frankfurt Museum of Communications by french artist Jean-Luc Cornec from quite a long time ago. Though the following photos were taken in approx 2004, I believe the installation was first implemented in the early 1990s.
