Artist's Description

from Aesop’s Fables

A Rooster was scratching the ground in a farmyard in search of food for himself and his hens, when he happened to turn up a precious stone. “You may be a treasure to your proper owner,” he said, “but for me I would rather have a single barley corn than all the jewels in the world.” Moral: The value of an object is in the eye of the beholder.
