You may be familiar with Rumpelstiltskin, a German fairy tale talking about a miller’s daughter who could (allegedly) spin straw into gold. I loved fairy tales when I was a child and Brothers Grimm’s tales were among my favorites. Today I came across a very clever artwork imagined by Mandy Smith based upon Rumpelstilskin’s descriptions.
Notice anything strange? Yes, the dress is made from baking paper, the wheel is cardboard while everything else (room & props) are designed, created and painted by hand. Photography Leon Hendrickx, model Dorothy Bany. Isn’t this enchanting?
