'A Frog and an Ox' print by Edward Bawden was originally a colour linocut produced in 1970. During this time Bawden made a series of prints inspired by Aesop’s fables. In this particular story the frog, with his webbed feet firmly balanced on the water-lily, puffs himself up to twice his normal size. He points towards a passing Ox and, boasting to his companions, suggests that he, too, can be the size of this Ox. His companions doubt this, and with each puff deny that he has yet reached the Ox’s size. Determined, the Frog continues puffing until finally he bursts. The moral? Rather than imitate others, be true to your self.
