World famous 17-year-old art prodigy Alexandra Nechita was in Oklahoma Thursday to donate a massive painting to the Oklahoma City National Memorial Museum.

Alexandra created the painting after the Oklahoma City bombing; she was only nine years old at the time. The 60-inch by 80 inch painting depicts the heroic fireman holding an infant.

She included a personal message on the back of the canvas expressing her hope that she would never again have reason to create a painting under such circumstances.
