One more landscape

I decided to recreate a landscape drawn with my left hand, remembering my childhood drawings. Instead of painting a cow eating grass, he thought about what would happen if the cow ate humans. He asked 60 children between the ages of 5 and 6 to color his drawing.

This drawing surprised them and made them uncomfortable to see a cow eating parts of humans. to see a cow eating parts of the human body. Ninety-five percent of them roughly used the color green, trying to erase the lines, as cows should only eat grass. Two percent painted the hands and feet in skin tones. While the other 3%, was the most interesting as they started coloring using skin tones because they saw hands and feet, but realized that all their classmates were trying to cover them, so they decided to do the same.
