The extraordinary grandeur of architecture and style portrayed in this piece allows for a profound emotional dialogue. A gorgeous setting from a time long past; the traces of history and evidence of decay cause wonderment and intrigue. One cannot help but wonder how beautiful it must have once been - how it would have felt to sit on the bed and enjoy the view of the lavish gardens. The personal stories of destiny surrounding the bed most certainly span from loss to triumph but they all have one thing in common - this environment provided them with the one thing needed the most… hope.
