For NZ Sake Series Fine Art Prints of Limited Edition - Sheep Tally

This piece of the collection screams hard graft. An old shearers kit: woolen Jackie Howe singlet, greasys (shearing chaps), an antique handpiece and it's fellow - a handpiece screwdriver tool - languishing south of Foveau Straight, the overriding image is more than just metal and material: it's blood, sweat and tears. The age of the implements gives the piece a timeless feel, representative of the hard work of the founding farmers of this country, as well as a nostalgia for when farming was all manual labour and subsistence living and not the technological science and mechanised function it is today.

"Farming is the backbone of this country. Isn't that what they say?" "Tally recalls an age when the word ‘gang' didn't have the connotation it has today. Back then the best-known gangs were shearers."
