I love trying my hand at these challenges.  TJ’s photos are always interesting and evocative.  This figurine has an alive and suffering look that is most arresting.  The figurine’s age and the fact that Galle’s glass is far more famous and desired by collectors than his majolica lends the image a certain sadness.  Thank goodness TJ rescued it and I am sure it now has pride of place in his collection.

Never to be leading light
