Product Details


A totally unique piece.

Following the death of his much loved pet starling Mozart wrote a funeral poem, arranged a funeral procession and had a gravestone erected.

I think there should have been some sort of shrine so I’m working on it…….

My inscription comes from the first line of the funeral poem: Hier ruht ein lieber Narr: Here rests a dear fool……
