Good Day for Lindee Climo, an American artist whose exhibition "Love Conquers War" has opened at the National Museum in Washington. All 23 paintings are modelled on works by famous painters, but with human figures replaced by sheep. She has a Titian sheep in her "Venus of Urbino", a Botticelli ewe and ram as Venus and Mars, and a flock of Caravaggio sheep. The paintings are said to "question human egocentrism".

Bad Day for Iranian pet dogs, whose owners have been told that walking dogs in public is a sign of Western cultural invasion. According to a Tehran newspaper, "some identity-less young people, in order to show off, take dogs into the streets in imitation of foreigners." A shopkeeper is quoted as saying that the police should take action against such behaviour because dogs "disturb pedestrians, especially women and children".
