An exceptional piece
for Mother's Day

Exceptional Mother's DayExceptional Mother's Day
On the occasion of Mother's Day, the Feu Follet presents an exceptional piece: a single copy of the Dance of Sophocles, Cocteau, dedicated to his mother.

This moving autograph signed and dated by the author to his mother, in Latin, resumed a verse of Virgil Eclogues:

"INCIPE, Pareve stink: cui non relatives Risere, nec deus hunc mensa, dea nec cubili dignity is. / Virgil. / Jean "


which this is the French translation:

"Child, admit it: the son to whom his parents have not smiled is worthy nor approach the table of a god or to be admitted to the bed of a goddess. "
