Hase und Igel by Karl Geitz

1930?  One postcard featuring "Der Hase und der Igel."  Karl Geitz.  Kunstlerkarte.  Betriebs-Nr. E 3756.  Verlag: Karl Geitz, Bruchsal.  €6 from Akpool, March '

The card features some gold, especially in the sun shining down on the two.  The card is strong on contrast: the low class hedgehog in coveralls with bare top and big belly by contrast with the tall Prussian soldier in uniform.  I have sometimes wondered whether this story is a fable at all, especially because of the phases it goes through.  In the end, I am happy to accept it as a fable.
