Sheep are symbolic of Sardinia, as they represent one of the island’s most important products: pecorino sardo, sheep’s milk cheese. In particular, the Nera di Arbus, are a black sheep breed indigenous to Sardinia that nearly went extinct in the 70s but are now becoming more widely recognized and preserved throughout the island.
