"Are you afraid of poison?" asked the old woman.
"Look, I'll cut the apple in two. You eat the red half, and I shall eat the white half."
Now the apple had been so artfully made that only the red half was poisoned. Snow-White longed for the beautiful apple, and when she saw that the peasant woman was eating part of it she could no longer resist, and she stuck her hand out and took the poisoned half. She barely had a bite in her mouth when she fell to the ground dead.
The queen looked at her with a gruesome stare, laughed loudly, and said, "White as snow, red as blood, black as ebony wood! This time the dwarfs cannot awaken you." - Little Snow White by The Brother's Grimm
My last entry into the upcoming Poisoned Apples show - you can see the other 3 by clicking back through the last few posts. For the show, I had it printed on aluminum which added some fantastic color & depth. Again, many thanks to DeviantArt member daylight-calling for use of her photo as a jumping off point.
If you're in Detroit this weekend & enjoy a trip to the dark side, pop by The Funhouse Gallery between 7pm & midnight 6/9 for the opening reception. The show runs through most of June.
