Not sure if I should email the teacher or not

Today as I was going through my sons class workbook and noticed that he had drawn a picture and the teacher put a HUGE purple question mark right smack in the middle of it. I asked him why did he have that there and he said the teacher didn't know what it was. So naturally I asked him what was it and he said it was a picture of a man. Now granted he's 4 and not the best artist so I just said ok and that it looked great. I told DH about it and he said to email the teacher and ask why she did that. I want to, but don't want to offend her. What would you do? Email her or let it be?

 I have no idea what I would do to be honest.  I have never had a teacher do that to my 4 year old's picture.  That is craziness.

That's what I was thinking and he told me it was a man. It looked like scribbled lines with big circles and a question mark right down the middle of it.

Quoting TheTaoOfKim:

maybe he was supposed to actually draw a tree or something.

Yeah, I'd ask too. there my be  perfectly good explination, but on the other hand, there are teachers who are bullies too. I think it is strange she would do that no matter what the reason just because kids are so excited about drwings, crfts, ect. To me, drawing a huge "?" in the middle would kind ruin the drawing, kwim?
