The Story is about an Art Teacher in Miriam's native Argentina.
                    The teacher never acknowledged Miriam's artistic capability, and will always tell her that it is her mother (who is a Painter) that did the Art Homework. Miriam recently met the (badly) aging teacher and felt pity for her.
She decided to dedicate this Masterpiece, To My Teacher, 1s a memory and an evidence of her art capability.
On the cast glass eraser, Miriam etched: To my Teacher with my Love
