The Concept

Her terrarium held inside of it a beautiful belle. Inside the terrarium, the belle could relax as she pleased. Within the boundaries of its glass walls, the belle enjoyed the lush greenery without a care in the world. She kept her terrarium with her at all times, admiring its beauty. It was, in fact, a perfect reflection of herself.
