Cast in bronze in 1955, "Sheep (The Guests Have Arrived)" depicts a flock of seven foreshortened sheep staring straight ahead at the viewer. Two smaller sheep, possibly lambs, are included in the bottom right hand corner. Fredericks incorporated a great deal of detail in each of the sheep, especially in their fluffy wool coats.
