Artist's Description

This pair come from the classic fable from Aesop:

The country mouse had a visit from his cousin from the big city, who was very dismissive of the simple country life. “Come stay with me in the city and see how well you can really live!” the city mouse said. So the country mouse went with him to the fine townhouse where rare delicacies were served on silver platters. Just when the country mouse was thinking that his cousin had the right way of it, the homeowner’s dogs came charging into the room and the mice had to run for their lives. Realizing that the constant terror was the price his cousin paid to live in the lap of luxury, the country mouse ran all the way back to his humble but peaceful country home.
