I thought I heard someone say once that that if you are an elephant you should not try to fit in an anthill. Anyhow, the saying stuck with me an inspired me to do the underpainting of this two years ago. I returned to it recently and this might be the final version. After finishing it I tried to search the internet for any reference to a saying or idiom or tale, but have come up mostly empty except to learn that the two are natural enemies. They do actually show up in a lot of tales just not in the specific way I remembered hearing.
