This is the 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).

The tale concerns a shepherd boy who repeatedly tricks nearby villagers into thinking wolves are attacking his flock. When a wolf actually does appear and the boy again calls for help, the villagers believe that it is another false alarm and the sheep are eaten by the wolf.

The moral stated at the end of the Greek version is, "this shows how liars are rewarded: even if they tell the truth, no one believes them".

This original painting is from the Ron Embleton family collection.
