CM: To make The Lesson Liana Lemona has used six cut-out illustrations from magazines. The picture shows a grown owl in the foreground presiding over a class of four young owls in the background. Lemona uses archetypal features to underline the traditional conventions associated with the lesson. The teacher is portrayed with an austere expression, wearing a bow tie, and hallowed by a gilded frame. The students are portrayed each in a color of its own, lined up orderly on the branches of a tree, against a window opening to the sky.
