Deceived Riding Hood

Deceived Riding Hood
Photo Description:
Medium: Sgraffito on clay, glazed Size: 10 X 10 X 16 in Date: 2015 September This piece represents the danger of child deception. Once, I read an article revealing truth in "little red riding hood" fairy tale that in the original story, little red gets raped and killed by the big bad wolf. Appropriating this story, I drew four scenes in my own interpretation of the imagery to reflect the original story on each side of the lamp: little red encountering the wolf, little red deceived by the wolf, the wolf coming and eventually kidnapping her. This night light, which is unlikely to be used for real children, however approaches the reality and promotes awareness of certain danger to the youth.
