Day 80 Lachrymatory Tear Bottle

Day 80
In my sketchbook I have been drawing lachrymatory bottles.  When I saw this sacred heart I knew it was destined for Sam's bony fingers.

 The captivating tear bottle tradition dates back nearly 3,000 years, when mourners were said to collect their tears in a tear bottle, also called a lachrymatory, and bury them with loved ones to express honor and devotion.

Each day is a gift, open now.
