The Art in Fairytales

Scary fairy tales have regularly been a point of discussion.Whether or not we should shield our children from them? Some of the stories can be scary, I admit. But life too is scary at times. Brothers Grimm for example were collectors of stories with roots in oral traditions. These stories were often based on ancient mythologies, beliefs and legends.Throughout history stories all over the world have been altered to reflect the religious and cultural beliefs of the time. Sometimes incorporating christian symbolism as opposed to pagan for example, but the message usually remains the same. Some believe there are similarities between some biblical stories and older myths and legends. I think fairy tales with roots in legends are fascinating. They combine fact with emotion, myth, and wisdom and can be a powerful tool for social control.

A good storyteller is captivating for both young and old. When in Holland I love to visit Het sprookjespark in a place called The Efteling: The Fairy Tale Forest (Sprookjesbos in Dutch) is a 15-acre (61,000 m2) wooded section of the amusement park Efteling in the Netherlands, where a number of well-known fairy tales and fairy tale figures are depicted by ANIMATED statues and buildings. Most of the figures are inspired by the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen, and Charles Perrault. The youtube video will give you an idea of the magic.
