As days passed the bird continued to live with the price. People who saw price's statue no longer found it attractive. They exclaimed, "Oh! How dull, grey and lifeless he looks. "But the prince was very glad that he could help the suffering. Then one day, the bird fell ill and died at the price's feet. The statue too fell off and broke into pieces. The next day the broken statue and the dead bird were thrown away. When God sent his angels to bring two good souls from the earth the angels chose the souls of the price and the bird and took them to God.
