Ghanima walked slowly around the sculpture sent as a gift from House Jerodme, studying it with intent eyes. Jerodme held a temperate world, and the young ruler of the house had sent a rather unique creation. Other houses often sent massive gifts of precious stone, of rare gems and other such things. But this piece was different, and she wondered what had gone through the woman's mind as she sent it. The sculpture was hand-carved out of a single, large piece of dark polished hardwood, and stood roughly half her height even before she considered the pedestal it rested on. Her Dune-raised eyes made her call the use of the wood extravagant, but it shone under her fingertips with a reflected light nothing else could match, the grain whorled and twisted through the piece as much as the figures it reflected twisted through each other... It was lovely.

It would have been extravagant for the simple Fremen her mother had been.

Suitable and unique for a gift to the God-Emperor and His Empress... it still was.

She would see what her brother might be willing to give to the House in return for this most unusual gift. Just as soon as she made certain that the statue was installed somewhere that Dune's air would not dessicate it. Not her chambers, but... this would do very well in the old botanical garden.
