Daniel Mackie takes his inspiration from art forms such as Art Deco, Egyptian tomb painting, Impressionism and Japanese prints, along with his love of mythology and Aesop's Fables. The interior of the animals is particularly influenced by the The Arts and Crafts Movements and the Japanese printmakers of the Ukiyo-e period.

In Aesop's Fable The Frogs That Desired a King, the frogs get a lesson in Liberty. The frogs ask Zeus for a king, he gives them a log and the frogs make fun of it. They ask Zeus for a 'real king'. Zeus sends them a water snake who promptly starts eating the frogs. They appeal to Zeus but he says they must live with the consequences of their request.
