  18. 18. TRANSLATION: This imagerepresent curiosity and close-mindedness because on the leftits simple and boring like theminds of people who are close-minded. However, the right siderepresents curiosity because it isvibrant, full of colour andanimated like curious-mindedpeople.The theme of close-mindedness isrepresented by the stubborn andskeptical man. The man always needsproof and needs to see to believe(scientific). The stubborn boy doesntwant to listen and this also makes himskeptical. In the Bible, Thomas doubtsJesuss declarations and has to touchhis scars in order to believe that Jesuswas resuscitated.The theme of curiosityis representCuriousGeorges: and the littleboy. Thesecharacters ask a lot ofrepetitive questionsand their curiosity getsthem in trouble withadults. Until a certainpoint, it is normal to becurious and learnlessons, but too manymistakes can put youin a difficult situation.Translations
