Jeans for Genes

Today I was in Paternoster Square (adjacent to London's St Paul's Cathedral). There is a beautiful sculpture there by Elizabeth Frink called the 'Shepherd and Sheep'. Today however it had been 'denimised'. The shepherd was wearing jeans and the sheep had blue denim bow ties.
Today apparently is Jeans for Genes Day "Raising funds for today's scientist for tomorrow's children' - an important fundraising organisation for research into genetic diseases in children. See for more information
I am sure Elizabeth Frink would be happy to see her sculpture used in such a creative way to help such a good cause.
