Within the chandelier's decoration, the head of a queen was concealed inside a clear sphere filled with water. When unveiled, the head could open its eyes and smile, manipulated by strings controlled by Jiri Zaman. The entire chandelier could be lowered from the ceiling.

Glass rods were shaped by a torch, while other components of the marionette were sculpted, molded, and cast in clear resin. Some decorative elements for the chandelier were crafted using homemade pressure forming techniques
