French Horn with Mouse

“Can you ever forgive me for posting this delightfully corny image?” I had almost forgotten how I got here and then realised it had been produced by a search for images of Rebecca Horn. Hence a combination of surrealist chance and google images produced French Horn with Mouse [or Mouse with French Horn].

John Cale of the Velvet Underground is playing in the background [Fragments of a Rainy Season] and I am reading about writing, techné and female sexuality and this image provided a little light-hearted relief. Could it be that somewhere deep in Dissertation Land there is a mouse playing a french horn?.
