Words from the Artist

In the world of itchy sheep one tree is king. Their admiration for the Scratching Tree goes deep. Hard times can come and the Scratching Tree may be their only way out. Once they spot the tree they know they are in their kingdom of peace.

It all started with one itchy sheep who was feeling terribly uncomfortable and wanted to scratch its back. Not knowing what to do and going crazy itching, the sheep happened to see a tree with one branch sticking out about one meter above the ground. Convinced as she was the branch was there for a reason, she miraculously found out the branch helped her solve her problem. Her joy was contagious. While scratching her back and bleating of happiness, the other sheep were notified to come along and join. Each sheep of the flock instinctively decided it a wise thing to do, thinking “if it can make one of us happy it can make me happy as well”. Eagerly though respectfully the whole flock went rushing over to stand in line at the Scratching Tree bleating like new-born lambs fully inspired and patiently waiting for their turn.

Although sheep aren’t the brightest of animals they do know very well how to effectively use of the power of group thinking. Sheep know by heart that collective wisdom makes them smarter and even superior to the individual wisdom of even the smartest flock members. And although some of the other sheep weren’t really that itchy, scratching their backs at the Scratching Tree taught them how to solve possible future problems of that kind. But  most importantly what it taught them is to trust in someone else’s care; it makes them happy, it makes them bleat, it makes them feel in their comfort zone and enjoy in the warm embrace of togetherness.
