"The change had already happened"
In Edvard Munch’s image "Puberty" the young girl seems to be afraid of her own shadow, but think if it wasn’t so? Think if she had known all the time, the right names of things and how to call forth the metamorphoses.
In "Tehanu, the last book of the Earth-Sea triology", One of Ursula K. Le Guin’s main characters is Therru or Tehanu a child that does not speak. A clue to her true nature is given in the image of a paper fan. When this fan is held towards the light it shows that the humans painted carrying about their work at one side of the fan is in fact interacting with the dragons painted on the other.
