This diorama is part of the Tales Most Disturbing series.

This fairytale-inspired series is hand painted and constructed to resemble an old treasured tome.

Displayed on their own stand… each little diorama book tells a tale not so happily ever after.   

A Cautionary Tale… one of the saddest tales of lost potential through envy, pride and intolerance.

The hand-painted, original poem inside the book reads:

"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."
