The Tiger and the Statue/The Tiger killed by Humans

Humans have always loved painting themselves. Or creating themselves in marble.
Then you can see them hunt down fearful tigers.
Our museums would look a lot different if tigers could paint.

Le Tigre et la statue / Le Tigre tué par l’homme.

– L’homme a toujours aimé se peindre lui-mème.

Ou se sculpter dans le marbre.

On le voit vaincre de redoutables tigres.

Les museées auraient une tout autre allure,

si les tigres savaient peindre.

Tigeren og Statuen / Tigeren dræbt af mennesket.

-Mennesket har altid yndet at male sig selv.

Eller at udforme sig i marmor.

Så kan man se ham nedlægge frygtindgydende tigre.

Museerne ville se helt anderledes ud, hvis tigre kunne male.
