Description:     

This study of children's graphic ability has been made in relation to Rudolf Steiner's spiritual scientific observation of the human being. His observation encompasses the physically unseen spiritual dynamics behind form and growth-the archetypal members of the human being. Therefore we need to be conscious that we are seeing deep and sacred processes being shown us by the child.
