Le Guilloux OF

Three features of this funny piece of art are worth noting. First, the frog is dreaming of being bigger than an ox: "I want to make myself bigger than an ox." Secondly, Le Guilloux is showing the very moment when the expanded frog blows a leak and starts to spew out the air that she has collected. Thirdly, the smaller (and younger?) frog is tapping his head. Might this gesture mean something like "You have bats in your belfry"?
