See the picture below; drawn by a 51/2 yr old child. (This is a scene from the Indian mythology of Little Krishna stealing butter from the women folk)
She drew this based on the stories she heard and not imitating a picture. What I found very interesting here is the entire sequence of the events depicted here. As you can see, there are three ‘Krishna’s” in the picture (see the circles in the below picture)
This is how the imagination goes. To begin with, Krishna is sitting on a tree top and see the two women coming with butter-filled pots on their heads (the top most circle). Krishna now silently gets down from the tree (the middle circle) and then is right behind the women about to steal the butter (the bottom circle)
Look at the concept of space and time depicted in such a simple way. As adults we have developed very strong sense of both space and time, which limits our imaginaion and ceativity.
