Sheep. It's about 18 inches tall, I believe, and is at Worlds of Wonder. Tiny puppets march up and up and in and out until they reach the top, where they swan to the ground below. Fellow puppets pick up the pieces and carry them up again. This one is static. I reproduced it as one part of the kinetic sculpture "Midway Between Grace and Chance" . In that version, the puppets actually do move in and out and appear to fall. I must find to show you a photo of the insane gearing mechanism inside.
