A "beautiful"story as those that we were used to listen to in childhood....Today "computer-games" translate into a battle strange stories of Good and Bad peoples.....Target is to kill the "Bad".....In the past bad peoples became "monsters" and Good ones became "Prince-Princess or beautiful swans"....In this story they survive as "perpetual smart stones"....A beautiful Fairy Tale well depicted by your photo
