EYE MINIATURE DUE TO BE AUCTIONED BY CHRISTIE'S IN LONDON.
An eye miniature, dating from 1800, is displayed ahead of auction at
Christie's in London on November 7, 2002. Eye miniatures, originally
worn as jewellery mounted as brooches, rings, lockets, and tie-pins
were meant to capture the window of the soul, and this example is
expected to fetch between 800 and 1,200 pounds ($1,234 - $1,852) at
auction on December 10. REUTERS/Alice Evans
