Who is that impressive animal in the miniature garden, and who is that person who has joined him? It looks like Man and Ox, a quaint and peaceful pair who have just returned from adventures in the mountainous countryside. The ox is a figure has been painted a dark brown that will stand out in the miniature garden against bright blooms and foliage, but the details on his horns, face, and body have been carefully formed, making it very clear that this is not your normal cow or other livestock, but a strong ox.
Atop the animal sits a kind and gentle man. He has just hopped up to take a rest before going on his way. His white mustache matches his snow-colored hat and bright white book. Ah, who does not dream of a sunny day in which to read and relax with friends, be they animal or human? Man and Ox will have you dreaming of such days.
