Story
In the fifth canto of Purgatorio Dante encounters the sinner, Buonconte da Montefeltro. Buonconte led the Ghibelline army (Dante’s rival faction), and died in the Battle of Campaldino, 1289. Upon his death, the devil promptly appeared, ready and eager to take his soul into the infernal abyss. However, he is turned away by an angel. Somehow, the Ghibelline leader is saved from Inferno, at the final moment of his life, because he sheds just one little teardrop - una lacrimetta.

The Baby Spellbinding Amphora is a talisman to carry on your adventures, as a reminder of the beauty of the teardrop, and all its cathartic powers. The shape resembles an antique Roman vase, the fluid drip of a teardrop, and an anatomical heart, exemplifying the ways in which our mind and body are interconnected.
