Shearing of the Ram Sculpture, Lowesdale

Landmarks and Buildings

Urana artist Andrew Whitehead was commissioned in 2018 by Federation Council to create a lifesize replica of a shearer using blade shears to shear a curly horned ram, inspired by the Tom Roberts painting of the same name. Andrew Whitehead uses scrap metal to create his installations and requested that the students of Lowesdale Public School, in front of which the sculpture is located, each donates an old iron cog to the piece. He then carved each student’s initials into their cog before adding them to the fleece of the ram.

Andrew Whitehead’s other sculptures can be found on his Facebook.

The sketches Tom Roberts did nearby on the former Brocklesby Station formed the basis for his iconic painting, Shearing the Rams. This sculpture now forms a part of the Shearing the Rams Trail throughout North of the Murray, celebrating Tom Roberts’ impact on the area.
