Le Petite Chaperon Rouge
French Doll number 3. I do love her so.
My beautiful copy of Charles Perrault's Petite Chaperon Rouge was my inspiration. If any of you have ever been lucky enough to have studied Myth and Fantasy at Deakin under Anne McCulloch then you would have unravelled the meaning of this tale over and over again. How fear of the wolf keeps a young girl from straying from 'the path'..... I like to believe that my red riding hood does stray off the path, she has the strength to face the wolf and in fact devours him whole, which explains her rather rotund appearance. More on this later.....
