A Peculiar Rhyme

May 25, 2017

 

"Hey diddle diddle the cat and the fiddle; the cow jumped over the moon. The little dog laughed to see such sport, and the dish ran away with the spoon."

 

Is this merely a nonsense rhyme or does it suggest something more? 

Regardless of its message, this playful children's rhyme and its artistic depiction carries strange associations. 

 

The box contains a clockworks that slowly turns the cow and the dish (hidden below the horizon) around the moon.
