(from 4 years and up)
Some of Hilma af Klint’s letters and words we can understand, while others seem to carry their own meaning. In pink and blue it is written “rose” in a painting from 1907. In another painting from the same year you can read the word “love” written in yellow. And in yet another one she painted a large yellow “u” and a “w”. What do you think that means?
