1981 Calder Lioness and Fox

 1981 Postcard of "A Lyoness and a Fox" by Alexander Calder from his 1931 "Fables of Aesop."  Whitney Museum of American Art.  $5.01 from HipPostcard, March, '23.

I am not even sure that this is a postcard, but it is the usual Calder fun of x-ray vision and surprising situations!  This tale is provoked by mothers comparing how many children they produce at a time.  After hearing their numbers, the lioness answers "I only bear one, but he's a lion!"
