But it was no longer safe for him and his wife. So they had to go. They had to leave that night.
There was little to pack. Some food, a few household items and, of course, his tools, his only means of livelihood.
They would make a new life in a new place. His wife would bear a son, who would change the world.
And he would continue his work, quietly. He made beautiful things, and he kept his family safe.
