Naart – Art from a naive heart


Blind man’s son

The blind old man took the orphan boy to be like his own son. The boy helped his father and shepherd his sheep. One day he went to the Fairy’s Valley, even though his old man told him no to. In his youth, the old man lost his sight to the fairies, who bewitched him and took his eyes. So, the boy took the sheep on the Fairies land and started to play his whistle. The fairies were so mesmerized with his singing that they promised to give back the old blind man’s eyes. So, the old man received his sight, and the young boy married one of the fairies, who fell in love with him.

The scenes are from a painted box.
