Please note: This is an original digital artwork. The above image is taken directly from the image file, rather than being a photograph or reproduction of the final print.

The series is a limited edition of 7 and the price is for a signed mounted print.

'A World of Tales' collection derives from a study of the portrayal of women in fairytales. I choose stories that had women at the forefront of the narrative and try to get into their mindset and surroundings.

The Manacled Mannequins is based on the tale of the Twelve Dancing Princesses, a story that isn't so well known, but looks at 12 daughters that secretly escape every night to dance. They are eventually discovered by an old soldier and the eldest daughter is made to marry him. In my version the daughters are trapped as dolls in a never ending wheel. They have the freedom to dance but are still trapped by the men in the story.
