This is the original painting by Ron Embleton used to illustrate the book Aesop's Fables, retold by Lornie Leete-Hodge (Dean, London, 1985).
In this fable, a Dog was carrying a piece of meat in his mouth to eat it in peace at home. On his way he had to cross a bridge across a brook. As he crossed, he looked down and saw his own reflection in the water.
Thinking it was another dog with another piece of meat, he made up his mind to have that also. So he made a snap at the shadow in the water, but as he opened his mouth the piece of meat fell out, dropped into the water and was lost.
This original painting is from the Ron Embleton family collection.
