THE WHIMSICAL MUSICAL BOXES:

the saddest tale

Mixed Media Taxidermy Musical Box

(plays “In Praise of Death”)

17″h x 9″w x 15″d

 

Rotating music box with carved wood door & book that tells the sisters sad tale;

 

 

The wind whispered true, of a secret she knew

 

of two sisters fate doomed from the start…

 

Though their differences few, this all changed as they grew

 

yet no lessons were learned to impart.

 

And although they did try, what they found by and by

 

was resentments could tear them apart…

 

You see, each one reflected traits the other rejected

 

and in time this would harden their heart.

 

Since no pact was respected, envy infected

 

the potential they had from the start…

 

And they died as expected, forlorn and neglected…

 

each alone, of a broken heart.
