Creepy Girls (4): The Girl on the Pedestal

Victorian Age children always creep me out.

I think it is how they are so often portrayed as little adults rather than what they actually are (i.e. children).

Add to it a Victorian penchant for the contrasting youth and death, innocence and obscenity and you get stuff like this photo.

(The Girl on the Pedestal)

The fact that her eyes are almost completely black, like some satanic little squirt, also adds to the general all round creep-fest motif.

    Poor kid was probably terrified at the skull sitting on her lap. Seems the parents are way creepier than the kids…
