Cute As A Bug's Ear


I am not sure where that expression came from because bugs don't have ears and if they did they could not possibly be cute...but I have heard that expression used in my family for years and that is what came to me when I saw this French vintage piece of signed, original art collage from the mid 60's. The colors are bright and still vibrant against the layers of vintage French newspaper, very unusual. This piece and another by the same artist, Francois are available here in my Ebay store.
