The Nightingale is inspired by the magical fairy tale written by Danish author Hans Christian Andersen about an emperor who prefers the tinkling of a bejewelled mechanical bird to the song of a real nightingale. When the Emperor is near death, the real nightingale's song restores his health and saves his life. The nightingale is a symbol of natural beauty and reminds us to appreciate mother earth.
