1984This is the unique original Mixed Media art by Ron Embleton.
This is the original painting by Ron Embleton used to illustrate the book Aesop's Fables, retold by Lornie Leete-Hodge (Dean, London, 1985).
A Fox fell into a deep well from which he could not get out. A Goat passed by shortly afterwards, and asked the Fox what he was doing down there.
Oh, have you not heard? said the Fox; there is going to be a great drought, so I jumped down here in order to be sure to have water by me. Why dont you come down too?
The Goat thought well of this advice, and jumped down into the well.
The Fox immediately jumped on her back, and by putting his foot on her long horns managed to jump up to the edge of the well. Good-bye, friend, said the Fox, if you had brains equal to the number of hairs in your beard you would not have jumped down without a way back up.
This original painting is from the Ron Embleton family collection.
