This 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).

One day a donkey found a lion's skin left by a hunter. He dressed himself in it and amused himself by rushing out of the trees to scare the animals who passed by. He laughed as they all ran away from him — fast! After a few times, he got so excited and pleased to see them all run that he opened his mouth and let out a loud sound — a donkey's braying. A fox, who had run with the rest, stopped as soon as he heard the sound. He went up to the donkey. “If you had kept your mouth shut you might have frightened me, too. But you gave yourself away with that silly bray!”

This original painting is from the Ron Embleton family collection.
