Artwork Description

“The fable of ‘The Fox and the Grapes’ has always been one of my favourites. I loved the idea that a phrase from this fable has become a part of our language. According to the fable, as the fox saw the grapes growing high up on the vine, he just kept jumping and jumping for them until he finally gave up, exclaiming that they were probably ‘sour grapes’ anyway!
