Jacob Grimm and Wilhelm Grimm
was in the middle of winter, when the broad flakes of snow
were falling around, that a certain queen sat working at her
window, the frame of which was made of fine black ebony; and,
as she was looking out upon the snow, she pricked her finger,
and three drops of blood fell upon it. Then she gazed thoughtfully
down on the red drops which sprinkled the white snow and said,
Would that my little daughter may be as white as that
snow, as red as the blood, and as black as the ebony window-frame!
And so the little girl grew up; her skin was a white as snow,
her cheeks as rosy as blood, and her hair as black as ebony;
and she was called Snow-White.
this queen died; and the king soon married another wife, who
was very beautiful, but so proud that she could not bear to
think that any one could surpass her. She had a magical looking-glass,
to which she used to go and gaze upon herself in it, and say
me, glass, tell me true!
Of all the ladies in the land,
Who is fairest? tell me who?
the glass answered, Thou, Queen, art fairest in the
Snow-White grew more and more beautiful; and when she was
seven years old, she was as bright as the day, and fairer
than the queen herself. Then the glass one day answered queen,
when she went to consult it as usual
Queen, mayst fair and beauteous be,
But Snow-White is lovelier far than thee?

in the creases creating an almost magical look. (Although
its difficult to catch with a camera, you can see in
the image below how the shimmering is caught in the light)
