all my sorrows were conceived of in a single night

Entitled - "All My Sorrows Were Conceived of in a Single Night" - 
this is my newest narrative object to take a fairy tale as its generator.

The original fairy tale "The Myrtle Tree" by Giambattista Basile is markedly different from the usual Grimm's fairy tales one encounters. 

The piece measures 4" x 3.5" x 4" and is comprised of cherry, brass hardware, moss, myrtle leaves, 
a brass key, a brass bell, marble and copper leafing.
