Fables de la Fontaine. Book in Progress (post 24)
Here is the Ox from The Frog and the Ox!!!
There are different types of Oxen (that’s the plural of ox). I decided to represent a Musk Ox because the presence is more appropriate for the story which is about a BIG ox and a small frog. The frog sees the giant ox and wants to be as big as he is. Our frog starts swelling to look bigger and bigger and them BOOM! She explodes. The fable doesn’t specify what kind of ox I should represent so I was free to make my own choice. The regular ox looks more like a cow or bull. But the Musk Ox is in my opinion a lot more interesting for the fable, I like the way the horns are set. Anyway, the oxen, cows, bulls etc are all from the Bovinae family. After this lesson I’m ready to go to a farm and spend the rest of my life working with animals from the Bovinae family I really like their personalities.
My Ox for the fable is looking down at the frog with that expression like: What? That frog is nuts! I thought that it was going to be very hard to make an animal like the musk ox look interesting but I really liked the way it turned out
The frog should be jumping in here tomorrow!
Have a wonderful day!
