When Cybis was producing sought-after and quite expensive limited editions in the 1970s, I was enthralled with collecting Cybis. We were steady customers at Mayors Jewelers in Miami who were a significant seller of Cybis. We would be called to preview the new releases, and I would go and look over each one to decide which I felt was the most beautiful. The artists would have differences one to another (similar to how Borsato created individual "one of a kind" by varying expression, colors, etc). This particular Queen Esther I believe captures the look of fearful hesitance yet determination to tell the King that, in fact, she was Jewish, and to beg for her people. The story is a beautiful one, in which the young Queen saves the Jewish people. The Jewish holiday Purim celebrates the bravery of Esther.
