James Henry Pullen

James Henry Pullen was born in an era when people had no idea about the concept of savants. They dismissed him to be mentally underdeveloped in 1835 London, and sent him to an asylum. There, in a small cell in Earlswood Asylum, James Henry Pullen built many beautiful masterpieces using nothing but wood and his own hands. His talent came to light during a handicraft session in the asylum and his masterpieces are displayed in England even today.
