No more beautiful over there than


It's darker here and smaller.

And there aren't any cakes.

Of course, you just can't see!

I can even see the time

on the church clock from here.

But I tell you, you can't see!

Can you see me?

How do I look?

Well, answer me, young man.

Am I old or young?

Am I ugly or pretty?

Perhaps you can see so well that you

think I have a hump on my back?

It's a very small one.

You can hardly see it.

And my dress, do you see

how it glitters and shimmers?

Do you see all the precious

stones and jewels?

It's quite pretty, yes.

Quite pretty?

Is that all you can say?

There are some people who can't

see how beautiful it is.

But you're not like that, are you?

You're not blind and foolish.

Oh, no, I can see all that isn't


Luckily, I always

carry with me the one thing

that can give new light

to human eyes.


Look how that thing is shining!

It's a big diamond

that makes people see.

You have to put that pretty

green hat on your head

and turn the diamond.

And at once the world will look

different. Your eyes will open!

But isn't it scary?

Maybe, a little bit'

but it's very interesting.

After turning the diamond'

you can even see

into the inside of things.

Yes, yes, inside of

most simple things.

You can see the soul of bread'

and of milk, and of water.

Can you see the soul of sugar, too?

Of course! The soul of sugar's no more

important than the soul of water.

This enchanted diamond, in which

a magic power is hidden'

will help you to find the Bluebird.

Take it, Tyltyl.

You can rely on it.

It will save you if youre in trouble.

Thank you.

Come on, try it.

Put it on.

And now...

Turn the diamond, Tyltyl.

Who are you?

I am the light that makes men see.

The world's all lapis lazuli.
