On the right side of the mantle, I placed a sheep painting I purchased in 2008 at the Lucketts Spring Antique Market. I loved the colors and the shape of the sheep. Again I stacked some books, and placed a vase of flowers on top. I love balance, but not necessarily symmetry, so I was looking for balance with the left side.
And below the painting, my brass deer pair play on the hearth. 🙂
Here you can see how it all works together.
