Glass Skull

There is an old medieval legend of the dance of the skelletons in which twelve strokes of the harp announce midnight and this is when the Devil tunes his fiddle.  The dance begins with the rattling of bones and before dawn approaches the dancers must return to resting place.  This glass skull, which is available for sale in my gothB4play shop, has dangles on the sides which replicate the "rattling od bones" and was inspired by the poem "Dance Macabre" by Henri Cazalis 1840-1909.
