Thursday Doors: Le Dorat – Celebrating The Mondial

Last week I promised more doors from Le Dorat, but with a bit of a twist, so here we have it.

Last weekend, the nearby town (although it prefers to think of itself as a petit cité) of Le Dorat played host to the world sheep-shearing championships. It may well have passed you by, since France was also at the same time the venue of the FIFA Women’s Football World Cup, but it was a big thing round these parts, where the sheep comfortably outnumber the human population.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get to the event itself, but a few weeks earlier I paid a visit to Le Dorat to take a look at some of the celebratory artwork that was appearing on shop windows and shop doors in anticipation.

To begin with, some double shopfronts, starting with the local kebab shop:

Rather more upmarket, there was the Traiteur (that’s a deli to the likes of us):

And I can’t recall what this was:

For the next two, you’ll just have to take my word that they are on doors – of, respectively, the bank and an insurance broker:

All very impressive, but it was nice to see that even some more traditional doors were getting into the spirit (even if only by association):

  1. It’s fun when the whole town seems to get into the spirit of an event like this. I love all of those cute sheep 🙂
