The Prado Museum in Madrid is among growing numbers of cultural facilities that are creating art reproductions to allow the visually impaired community art enjoyment.
Six reproductions are on currently on display for people to touch and experience. They were reproduced using textures and technology to allow the intricate details of the artwork to be felt with hands.
For many, this is the first time they are experiencing famous art first hand and it is an overwhelming feeling to finally understand what has only been described to them before.
