Folk Art | Ahmed and the Feather Girl
Folk art is a style dependent on traditional techniques and content. It is reminiscent of and evokes a sense of place.

Ahmed is a poor orphan who lives with a travelling circus and works for cruel Madame Saleem. His life is changed forever when he finds a beautiful egg in the forest and brings it back to the circus. From the egg hatches a little girl called Aurelia, and as she grows she sprouts soft feathers that turn into wings.
