Question by Meaghan: Need project idea for THE ALCHEMIST BY PAUL COELHO?
I need an idea for a physical representation for the book The Alchemist by Paul Coelho. If you read it, could you give me an idea? I can’t think of anything!! By physical representation, I mean a painting/drawing/sculpture/photo anything, but i can’t draw or paint so thats out, and besides, I want something REALLY creative. It has to have something to do with some idea/moment/relationship in the book. Please help!
Answer by Jen.
I suppose if you could do something representing a dream, as Santiago’s dream of treasure in Egypt is what sets him off on his personal journey and really what the whole book is about.
I am also not a creative sort all I can think of is using paper mache to make a map of Egypt with treasure on it, then maybe cotton wool underneath to show the clouds representing the dream he had.
Sorry may be no use of all, as I said I’m not creative.
