Does anyone remember the tale of The Nightengale? It is a wonderful fairytale by Hans Christian Andersen telling that no wealth or richness can be compared to the nature of God. A tale of artificial versus natural beauty.
The plot of the story is about a Chinese emperor who rejected a live nightingale for the fake song of a mechanical bird. As Death comes to claim the old emperor at the end of the tale, the real nightingale returns to sing for him. Death is so charmed by the lovely music that he spares the life of the dying man.
