This Red Riding Hood image above, of 'Paper cut animals and their snacks' by Wendy Wallin Malinow 2013, made me consider how artists have used paper cut interpretations of Little Red Riding Hood through time and the power of the paper cut in story telling.
Bringing to mind the magical work and storytelling abilities of Hans Christian Anderson.
When Hans Christian Anderson told stories he was always accompanied by a giant pair of scissors that drew in paper cuts, illustrations to the stories as he told them.
