This artwork is a plastic picture of a village at midnight made of cardboard. All houses as well as windows and doors are made of stacked cardboard giving the picture more depth. The surface of the picture was first covered by black colour and then coloured by pastel colours. The sky above the village is decorated by colourful buttons symbolising stars in the midnight sky.

The author of the picture is an autistic child expressing her feelings and her view of the world through art.
