No matter how you measure it, extinction is forever
I'm pleased with this one. The gold-framed reading glasses make an excellent display case for the tiny seahorse.
The wood behind the seahorse, the bit that looks like a bleak little landscape,
is from the casket of a cremated pet. When the brass name tag was removed, the glue left that landscape pattern. Lovely.
