Of course they have many terrific characteristics: They have fantastic horns; they win prizes at Cannes; they mow lawns. But sometimes you just want to gaze at them.
Now you can. All day. Every day. Two bloggers have created a compendium of sheep from all over the world with one thing in common: They were all captured by Google Street View cameras.
NPR brings Google Sheep View, created and curated by Ding Ren and Mike Karabinos (an “artist, writer, and photography professor” and an “archival theorist,” respectively), to our attention. It’s a collection of sheep from places as varied as Sweden, Lesotho, the Napa Valley, and Ireland, though the majority of the shots are from the Netherlands, where both Ren and Karabinos reside.
We haven’t seen any entries from the Faroe Islands yet, though, so make sure to check out our own look at the spectacular sheep found there. Check out Google Sheep View here.
