Rossia Maroon

These four large (8" x 8") wrappers include a lovely fable picture, which I offer here in each case as a detail.  Do not miss what I believe is a double fable representation in the last wrapper.  I believe that the artist is representing two fables at once.  Might the human figure there suggest even a third fable?

Bear and Monkey

Bear and Monkey Detail: There are at least two fables here: The monkey does not know how to use spectacles.  The monkey is also appalled at what he sees in the mirror.  "I would die if I myself ever looked that bad!"
