A naked shepherd with a tall crook in his left hand walks behind a small flock of five sheep. The subject matter resonates with the site as it was originally the Newgate Livestock Market. In 1997 the sculpture was temporarily moved to a site near the Museum of London whilst Paternoster Square was redeveloped – it was re-installed in 2003.
