All collectors know when they set eyes upon that fair sprite whose lifeless clay, wood or other drab purging from the earth is inhabited by light that flickers we know not how. No longer just a resemblance, regardless of the most exquisite details, but the soul of a thousand memories - each peculiar and known only in the deepest and most unprotected rooms of our hearts.

In shadow and light and read the mysterious messages that fall softly on the inner ear of hearts.
