very heavy but to me, goes with the other objects - not necessarily the sword. Kind of reminds me of medieval dragons etc. I have another object - not sure what the hell it is - kind of landed in my lap when the ex bf moved and he thought he could send his shit to my house with my son. Maybe you can tell me what it is - will send pic when I get chance. Looks cool, so keeping for my collection. You know what they say - possession is 9/10 of the law.
It is cruel, you know, that music should be so beautiful. It has the beauty of loneliness of pain: of strength and freedom. The beauty of disappointment and never-satisfied love. The cruel beauty of nature and everlasting beauty of monotony. - Benjamen Britten
