When the king is blessed with a baby girl, he commissions four artists--one to create a mural for each wall of her room. The artist who creates the most beautiful mural will be rewarded with a pot of gold. Three of the artists get to work right away, but one takes his time, sitting and thinking and even sleeping on the job. What happens when the big day arrives? Cantor Rosalie Boxt retells the story. For a written version of this story, see A Room for a Prince by Rabbi Jerome K. Davidson in "Three Times Chai: 54 Rabbis Tell Their Favorite Stories," edited by Laney Katz Becker.
