In the original version of this painting, there was a stack of leaves; from this stack was projected the shadow of the menacing bird-like creature ready to pounce on the unsuspecting mouse. I later removed the stack of leaves digitally, as the finished colour composition stood better using a limited palette. The painting has an uneasy aura, reminiscent of a butchers workspace. The pattern on the shadow is of ameba, another subtle injection of the poem's original imagery.
