Good Shepherd - Catacombs of Domitilla, Rome

Our image here of the Good Shepherd stands in a garden, with one sheep over his shoulders, and four sheep around him. Two sheep are on his left, and two are on his right. The closest two sheep look up at him, but the two out sheep are turned away from him and peacefully graze on the grass in front of them. Even further away on each side are two predatory animals from which the Good Shepherd loving protects his sheep.
