Hence the extensive research! I did get to read a poem I had never seen, nor did I know the author (William Henley). Ha! Anyway, from the poem:

 
OUT of the night that covers me,  
  Black as the Pit from pole to pole,  
I thank whatever gods may be  
  For my unconquerable soul.

With all of those eyes watching the bold screw, you didn't need a title, but ridiculous and pretentious is fun.

Can't tell what it is and it's wonderful. The colors are beautiful and love the screw.

The reflection of the abajour makes the marbles look like eyes!
