This project is based on Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale, Thumbelina. More specifically, it is inspired by the 1994 movie of the same name, produced by Warner Brothers. In the story, an old woman is unable to have children, so she asks a fairy to help her. The fairy gives her a seed to plant, and from this is born a small maiden, no bigger than a thumb. The girl is unhappy being the only person her size, but after various adventures, she finds her place beside a fairy Prince, growing wings after he proposes and they kiss. At the moment of my photograph, Thumbelina has just found out about the existence of fairies from a book her mother has read. She asks for her book to be left with her when she goes to sleep. After her mother is gone, she begins to wonder what it would be like to find other people her size.
