When you look at traditional porcelain figurines, you often think of pristine statues that exude elegance and grace, but these Shary Boyle sculptures are taking porcelain to interesting and exciting places as she creates pieces based on famous narrative tales.

Among the unique tales covered in these Shary Boyle sculptures are Perseus and his quest to kill Medusa as well as the children's classic Beauty and the Beast. All of these fantastical figurines feature surreal elements and viewers can't help but be in awe as they take a glimpse into the creative mind of Ms. Boyle.

Implications - There's been a retro revival movement among North American consumers as a direct response to the rapidly changing technological landscape. Consumers are turning to items with traditional aesthetics to satiate their need for familiarity. Corporations can capitalize on this consumer behavior by offering products with design elements that hearken back to decades long past.
