Princess: Snow White

Symbol Used in Exhibit: Snow White and apple replica from Raleigh vintage shop Father & Son

Her Story: Snow White laid still and lifeless, the poisoned apple by her side. The dwarves did their best to bring her around, but it was no use. They wept and wept for a long time. Then they laid her on a bed of rose petals, carried her into the forest and put her in a crystal coffin. Each day they laid a flower there. Then one evening, they discovered a strange young man admiring Snow White's lovely face through the glass. After listening to the story, the Prince said "If you allow me to take her to the Castle, I'll call in doctors to waken her from this peculiar sleep. She's so lovely I'd love to kiss her!" He did, and as though by magic, the Prince's kiss broke the spell. Snow White opened her eyes. Now in love, the Prince asked Snow White to marry him, and the dwarves reluctantly had to say goodbye to Snow White. From that day on, Snow White lived happily in a great castle.

Reason for Choosing: Wanted to convey a more gothic feel, in part due to the Snow White and the Huntsman movie coming to theaters. Liked the mysterious and dangerous theme from this movie.
