A Contrast – Scene: At a Sale of Antique Furniture WHEN THE MIRROR POLITELY STOOD STILL FOR A SPACE AND SHE VIEWED HERSELF IN THAT REEKING OLD PLACE WHILE THE TRIBES CLUSTERED , GRINNING, ALL ROUND HER SWEET FACE, SUCH A PICTURE WAS FRAMED AS ONE DON'T OFTEN SEE: ON OUR CATALOGUE'S MARGIN WE SKETCHED HER, PRO TEM, AND JUST ADDED THOSE LIVELY DESCENDANTS OF SHEM FOR A BACKROUND – THE BRIGHTER AND FAIRER THE GEM THE DARKER AND PLAINER THE SETTING SHOULD BE!
