Artist Statement : "A Mallard duck sat by a small pond. A frog came by and looked up at the Mallard. He knew that the Mallard would eat him if he tried to get by. The frog thought that if he were to go by the Mallard might let him live because he was too small. Should he take the chance and be eaten?" - Robert Sebastian
