Artist's Description

The Fox and the Monkey

by Aesop

A MONKEY once danced in an assembly of the Beasts, and so pleased them all by his performance that they elected him their King. A Fox envying him the honor, discovered a piece of meat lying in a trap, and leading the Monkey to the place where it was, said “that she had found a store, but had not used it, she had kept it for him as treasure trove of his kingdom, and counseled him to lay hold of it.” The Monkey approached carelessly, and was caught in the trap; and on his accusing the Fox of purposely leading him into the snare, she replied: “O Monkey, and are you, with such a mind as yours, going to be King over the Beasts?”
