Are you a reader entirely from the card images itself then, L Richard? Cause I see where you're coming from in terms of the image itself - the frog does look tired, carrying 10 staffs is hard work I bet - but somehow the artist thought it related to new starts cause that's the meaning given in the LWB.

Maybe this is a case of dissonance between the artist and the author. The artist interpreting the author's brief in their own fashion, leading to a darker card when perhaps the author had originally envisioned a frog carrying his burden to a new home, weary but undaunted and thus more indicative of setting out on a new start. But I am not a mind reader and I don't know what was in the artist and author's minds.
