Moments of inspiration

Celina is 5 years old, takes an A4 sheet of paper, folds it and cuts out some shapes at the folds so that they become symmetrical. She paints them pink and makes small cuts in the paper. The teardrop shape is lost, this is added a little smaller in white and, like the others, fixed to the blue painted sheet with adhesive tape. Subconsciously, this design is an oriental concept of rows, reflections and irregularities in regular shapes. The concept of the lively blue underground reflects that the idea and communication was more important to nomads than the lack of color.
