DIY Inspiration: Counting Sheep Medicine Bottle with Plastic Sheep. For more pages of clever plastic and rubber toy ideas and DIYs go here. 
This is by artist Laura Potter, made in 1997 called Cliché, This work was acquired by the UK Crafts Council in 1998. The sheep are cast in silver. From the UK Crafts Council:

Cliché is a bottle of tiny silver sheep to be taken out and counted at bedtime.
Laura Potter employs a wide range of precious and non-precious materials in her work. As a jeweller she seeks to challenge perceptions of jewellery as a purely decorative art and is concerned with the personal relationships that develop between people and their possessions. Her early works, including Cliché, incorporated ideas of health and well being, gradually developing into an exploration of the emotional and psychological support provided by jewelery. 
Cliché was part of a series of works acquired from the 1998 Crafts Council exhibition No Picnic, which focused on attitudes towards products and production among contemporary designer makers.
