I must be out of it. Don't consider them interesting or appealing at all. What is the point? Art? I guess to each her own.

Joyce K., You articulated my thoughts. Really!! What is the point? The old timers had a phrase for something like this. "Just Plain Goofy!"

I agree with Joyce K. I find them creepy and not interesting.

I think they are quite beautiful and most fairy tales are metaphors to explain to children extremely violent or graphic issues that they are too young and innocent to understand.

I recognized several fairy tales in these photos - Snow White receiving the poisoned apple, Rapunzel, Gretel being threatened by the witch, The Red Shoes maybe. Fairy tales are violent and dark. The real things are not the Disney version--take a look at Grimm's Fairy Tales. We are told that these tales were "cleaned up" by the Brothers Grimm.

Fairy Tales are creepy....wouldn't expect the photos to be any different ..... It's just ART if you don't like it, don't look at it.........

Pure Scorpio!!!

This Scorpio once received an Edgar Cayce reading telling me one of my lessons in life is to learn to understand evil.

If the Karmic Board inquires, I'll say...Hey, Evil is Live spelled backwards.
