The Frog King
This drawing is based on the one of the famous fairy tales written down by the Grimm brothers: The Frog King.
In the fairytale the frog meets with the young princess at the well, and asks her to throw her golden balls into the well so he could catch them. She is not very interested in playing with an ugly frog and leaves the place. However the frog manages to enter her room in the castle and asks the princess to be admitted to her bed – which – of course – she denies. She not only says “no” but takes the frog and throws him onto the wall. The result of this is the “birth” of a wonderful prince…
As you can see on the drawing I imagined a rather proud frog with two piles of golden balls. He is not the one who begs to be a member of the game, but plays the game himself. Wait till a young maiden comes his way – and then – whoosh – there goes the ball!
