Two artistic versions of Great Little red riding hood

Little red riding is a classic fairy tale, rewritten from the oral tradition by Charles Perrault (French version) and the Grimm brothers (German version). B Bettelheim, author of the "Psychanalyse des contes de fées" gave an interpretation of the fairy tale related to sexuality, anthropophagie, or rebirth. Here are two versions of Little red riding hood, one from Tomas Nilson and one from the Mondongo artists Group.

I'm fond of infographics, the art of making simple to understand stuff and facts. Here's a special version of the tale by Tomas Nilson. A must see !

The photos are taken from the red series from Mondongo, a collective of 3 promising artists from Argentina. They are using materials such as food (cookies, ham, cheese,..) or plasticine (it's the case in the above picture) for their work. see here or here
