King Arthur, the mythical 6th-century British king. One recurring aspect of Arthurian literature was the notion that he would one day return as a raven. The raven is a bird strongly associated with myth and legend. In Wales and the West Country, it was held to be a royal bird. After having researched King Arthur, Old Wives Tale was delighted to discover the strong links he has with Castell Dinas Bran (translated as Crow Castle) an apparent resting place of the Holy Grail. Not only does this illustration celebrate the magic of King Arthur, it was also created at the base of Castell Dinas Bran, where Old Wives Tale calls home. It looks beautiful in a simple frame but would look magical in a vintage antique frame too.

"It is better to be a lion for a day than a sheep all your life." – Elizabeth Kenny
Why go through life just following the herd when you can be as daring and bold as a lion. Sure it is easier to be like the majority of people and be told what to think and do, but to think for oneself takes courage. Stop following the flock and be a lion! Yet another fabulous tee from Random Objects, and brand new yesterday too! Printed on American Apparel 2001 tees. Manufactured in the USA, and sweatshop free.

Beautiful colour linocut from 1970. In the 1970’s Edward Bawden made a series of prints based on Aesop’s fables. The frog, with feet firmly balanced on the water-lily, puffs himself up to twice his normal size. He points towards a passing Ox and, boasting to his companions, suggests that he, too, can be the size of this Ox. His companions doubt this, and with each puff deny that he has yet reached the Ox’s size. Determined, the Frog continues puffing until, finally, he bursts. The moral? Rather than imitate others, be true to your self. Size: Image 30 x 42cm; paper: 42 x 51cm. Format: Giclée Print, Limited Edition (1/850) on 310gsm thick 100% cotton rag.
