Bonniol Huitre et Plaideurs

1944? "L'Huitre et les Plaideurs." "Tenez! La cour vous donne à chacun une écaille!" Colored postcard showing three children fulfilling the roles of the fable. Signed by "Ronniol" (?). Imprimé en France. Éditions Superluxe-Paris. €5 from Suzanne Botti, Le Bono, at the Paris Post Card Exhibition, Jan., '05.

One can ask what the purpose is of having the children play the adult roles in this fable. There may be something adult and even erotic about these children. Good color work.
