Space Sculpture Inspired by Afruz Amighi’s My House, My Tomb
In this activity, you will create your own “space sculpture” out of found objects, light, and shadow.
In the story called “The Girl Who Used Her Wits” (also known as “The Clever Daughter-in-Law”), two sisters are tasked to find fire wrapped in paper and are stumped. Luckily, on their journey to visit their mother, they meet a clever girl who solved the riddle and gave them fire wrapped in paper – a lantern!
Like the clever girl, create your own paper lantern and retell the Chinese folktale to your friends.
