Moses and the Golden Rat

This is a LO masterpiece that she brought home from Hebrew school this week. I didn't see it until this morning and I certainly understood what she drew but I asked her to explain the picture. (I wish I had taken a better picture of it - sorry!)

Apparently this is LO's artistic interpretation of the Moses finding the people worshipping the golden calf. What you can't see very well is that Moses has a very angry face and the broken tablets are on the ground next to him. I giggled and told her I didn't know that there was a golden rat (hey - doesn't it look like a rat?) She said someone told her to draw udders on it but she thought that was gross. I looked at the worshippers and noted that it is a woman and a little girl. I asked, "Oh my, is that supposed to be us worshipping the golden calf?" Her response, "No way - they have round eyes." Oy...not nice.
