Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

That is so strange, to me, it appears to have lion's feet and legs (meaning could be royal...the King) with a hare's head. Maybe I am just reading into that artwork something that is not there...or how about this?
Quote:From the Middle Ages until modern times, the right to hunt was a vigorously defended privilege of the ruling classes. Hunting Still lifes, often in combination with hunting equipment, adorn the rooms of baroque palaces, indicating the rank and prestige of their owners. Jan Weenix' painting shows a still life reminiscent of a trophy case with birds and small game, fine fruits, a pet dog and a pet monkey, arranged in front of a classicising garden sculpture with the figure of Hercules and an opulent palace in the background. The wealth and luxurious lifestyle of the patron or owner is clearly shown.
The message being this will happen to you, you beggars, if you hunt the ruling class' game.

Here's an interesting historical tidbit:
Quote:The link between the Killer Rabbit and Monty Python
Speaking about Pliny the Elder, it is extremely interesting to read what he has to say about rabbits:
The fertility of rabbits is enormous. By eating all the crops, rabbits brought famine to the Balearic Islands, to such extent that the people there petitioned Augustus to send troops to fight the beasts. Rabbits are hunted with ferrets. (Natural History, Book 8, 81)
FANTASTIC! Pliny actually mentions a desired military action against Rabbits! Which were actually killer rabbits, since they caused death through famine!
