That’s what I hear when I look at these sheep made from antique (‘antique’?  Really??  Yeah, antique!) phones.  This is an installation by artist Jean Luc Cornec in the the Museum für Kommunikation in Frankfurt, Germany.  Created in 2006, they’re, uh, sheep.   Made out of phones.  Clearly.  The heads are pretty obviously phones, but the hooves are also telephone handsets with one end melted and bent backwards, and the wool is made of phone cords.  So but for a sheepishly hidden internal framework, they’re all phones.  (Click the first three pictures for more phone sheep!)
