Part of the One Minute Wonders trail, a story written by one of our volunteers, inspired by objects on display.

I bet she caught your attention too, right? A mysterious woman glancing at you softly, from that silent corner of this crowded room.

No indication plate, no information about her creator, she exists on her own terms. She’s been there for a long time, long enough to own her surrounding, her outfit mimicking the décor.

She remains unnoticeable by many visitors, until the moment like this, when she lights up for those who have her attention.

So please now be attentive and look into her eyes. She has something to tell you. Can you hear her calm and soothing voice?

Did she just introduce herself to you? If she did tell you her name, could you please tell us, so we can finally know who is she!
