About the design
on December 22, 2009
I grew up with the fairy tale of the Town Musicians of Bremen by the Brothers Grimm. In this fairy tales, four animals past their prime years are mistreated by their masters, and they decide to flee together. The most known “position” of the animals is when they stand on each other’s back to look into a house.
I wanted to do an “Arabian Nights” version of this fairy tale, just because I thought it was interesting. I decided for a camel, a coyote, a Egyptian cat and a peacock. I decided to leave the house out, because I believe it would have been too much content for the picture.
