black and white sheep statue

Dumb question, but does anyone have an idea why the sheep statue is black and white w/ gold trim base while all the others are so colorful?

You mean, why is it uninteresting shades of gray. I have no idea, unless it's because the king feels it's less threatening that way?

If it were actually black and white, like the sheep in this game, it would be far more attractive.

Tangent:

Many people automatically dismiss "black and white" as not colorful because they're too used to grayish-black & off-white printed material--sorta like the sheep statue in Zellians.

I live in the Middle Ages and Renaissance part time (through the Society for Creative Anachronism). Our Barony's banner is black and white. Hung on a wall between, say, the blue, green, & gold peacock banner of Thousand Eyes and the red, white, and black of Otherhill, it's at LEAST as striking--even colorful--as they are.

Got it! The stupid thing is supposed to be pewter, rather than enamelware like the others.

Presumably it was a last-minute commission, and that was the medium that the king could get something produced in quickly.
