The Baby Carriage and Sleep-Sheep

by Asbjorn Lonvig, artist






This baby carriage has been placed  at Piazza della Rotondo in Rome.

The baby doesn't cry.
Not a sound.



In 1950 Pablo Picasso made the She-Goat in bronze.
She passed by and looked into the baby carriage.
The She-Goat laughed.
What might be in the baby carriage when it was not a baby?



Might it be one of the happy ghosts from the
huge Pantheon Church?
No, they could not stay that calm.




A Bedouin from Arabia
was sure it was a snake.



The Bedouin's camel and dromedary
talked about it, and they were sure
it was a snake, too.



However, a snake would have made some noise.
Rattling or so.



The Bedouin took a closer look.
A pair of legs?
He laughed.


A pair of sheep-legs.
Sleep-Sheep put on his coat.



And here is Sleep-Sheep on Piazza della Rotondo
in the middle of Rome
recovering from his nap number 7 this morning.


 
Sleep-Sheep has this rug
with 80 pictures of himself.
When he has counted 57 of them
he falls asleep
anywhere.

Even in a baby carriage.
