Walter Crane - Baby's Own Aesop - The lion and the Statue

The lion and the Statue. Illustration from Baby's Own Aesop drawn by Walter Crane.

A lion sees a statue of man on top of a defeated lion and comments wryly that if the statue had been carved by a lion, the roles would have been reversed. The moral is that the story depends on the teller.
