When a masterpiece of classical literature inspires contemporary decoration.
Little, tales are the first stories we were told, the first books that we were shown. Andersen, La Fontaine and many others are all authors who have marked our childhood. And many French children had to recite the fable of the Raven and the Fox:
Master Raven, on a perched tree,
Held a cheese in its beak.
Master Fox, by the alluring smell,
He pretty much spoke this language...
It was logical that this literary genre and especially the Fables of La Fontaine inspired the creation of decorative bookends.
Like the bookend Au loup, an interpretation of Little Red Riding Hood, the Designer of Shohan-design chose to draw The Raven and the Fox with burlesque style inspired by the cartoons of Tex Avery.
