When you're in Putrajaya, did you notice the beautiful paintings on the 'Putrajaya' signage located at Dataran Putra?
If you did, you must have been blown away by the details of it (we did).
To make the painting even more amazing, the painting was actually done by a 17-year-old autistic teenager named Wan Jamila Wan Shaiful Bahri.
According to a report by New Straits Times
, the painting incorporates the important elements of the Malaysian culture: famous buildings and bridges, people of various races and ethnicities as well as the Jalur Gemilang
She did the painting in conjunction with the National Day 2019 celebrations.
In fact, Wan Jamila's painting was chosen out of nine others by Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad himself.
Wan Jamila's mother, Noorhashimah Mohamed Noordin, 58, told the daily that her daughter started drawing at the tender age of 4.
“Every time August comes, I will ask her to draw anything along the Merdeka theme. She will choose everything herself, from the colours to the patterns, without anyone’s help.
“She managed to complete the drawing on the signage in a month-and-a-half. She spent a lot of time in her gallery, from morning till night to paint this,” she said.
If you haven’t seen the painting, make sure you visit the Putrajaya signage this Merdeka Day!
