This delightful print is an interpretation of Aesop's fable, The Wolf and the Kid. The story goes like this: A kid grazing on the edge of a pasture lost track of the time and when he looked up found that he was all alone. Well, almost. Near the edge of a wood was a wolf and the kid knew instantly that he was in trouble. As the wolf was about to seize him he cried out to the wolf “Please, play me a tune so that I can dance once more before becoming your supper”. The wolf obliged but the sound alerted the hunter and his hounds and the wolf was forced to leave hungry.
The point of this fable is to be true to who you are and to not “play piper” to someone or something that moves you away from yourself.is ready for framing or gifting and makes a lovely addition to any living space.
