Incident from Baha'i history
I permit drawing pictures during our daily Baha'i class (just my two kids attend), which tends to be pretty heavy going at times for the little guy. This is 9 year old Tomaso's depiction drawn last night of Mirza Buzorg visiting the soothsayer in order to find out the meaning of his strange dream about his son, Husayn Ali, floating in the ocean his hair connected to many fishes. Tomaso's 14 year old sister objected that in the speech bubble is a depiction of the Manifestation of God as a baby, which is not permitted.
I personally think a little latitude has to be permitted in these things, don't you?
