one unhappy sheep

This is one dismal, unhappy sheep.  There are some strange things carved by way of decoration into parts of USC, and this is one of them.  What kind of affect could it be possibly meant to have on the beholder?  I think that a Ruskinian interpretation would settle for the fact that it surely displays the feelings of some completely miserable worker - probably an Italian immigrant, wondering whatever he was doing so far away from home.
