Feast your eyes on the terrifying alternate versions of fairy tales compiled in an work of art titled La Ligue des Femmes Extraordinaires.

Haejeon Jessica Lee's illustrator drawings are not the images programmed in your brain from the family friendly Walt Disney movies. They are more representative of the actual fairy tale narrations by the Grimm brothers or Hans Christian Andersen, which often ended quite gruesomely. Maidens portrayed as helpless in kid-friendly stories are reverted into women of destruction, dealing blows to their foes like trained assassins. There is no beauty to be found in the butchering depiction of a chopped-up beast. The picture is given the title 'Beauty Eats the Beast.'

The La Ligue des Femmes Extraordinaires are able to be folded over to display bone chilling images on both sides of the paper.
