Marry's Story that came with Dancing Figures Painting

I have a little cousin. She and I are almost the same age, but our lives are completely different. It wasn't always like that.

We used to go to the same school together. Than one day something horrible happened to her: she got into a car accident. The doctors in the hospital said they doubted if she'd ever wake up again from the coma they had to put her in after all the physical trauma. She survived, though be it barely...

She awoke after being in a coma for about a month. Her mum and dad got all excited, even grandma rushed towards the hospital for this special occasion. But it seemed all in vain. All she did was stare somewhere in the distance, sometimes wiping off the little dribble from the corner of her mouth that she forgot to swallow before. She'd never be the same girl again...

Over time she's regained some of the skills she lost in the car accident. Lately she's been having to exercise her hands and her fingers. I gave her some finger paint, more or less as a joke, but also secretly hoping to find something again she'd enjoy doing. And luckily that was so.

To me, my little cousin is a pure outsider artist. She isn't able to enjoy normal life as you and I know it, but she is capable of letting you have a peek in her view upon the world as she knows it. One of those views is this 23x30cm painting called "Dancing figures".
