The Princess With The Axe by royal-nightmare The Princess With The Axe by royal-nightmare

Still dwelling in the world of folk tales. No genre of literature features more brutality than folk tales. There's nearly no tale without someone being killed in a gruesome way, stoned, eaten, shot or beheaded. You name it.

So here she is, Elizabeth. She can't take the behaviour of her husband Prince Alexander anymore and just choppes of her own head with an axe.

Useless Fact: Did you know, that if a head is chopped off just fast enough, the brain has still enough oxygen to live for another 7 minutes. Tales say that Marie Antoinette actually opened and closed her eyes, trying to speak, when her had was already cut off, laying in the wooden basket typical for a beheading with a guillotine.

I love folk tales! And the original ones are even more cruel than the child version ones. :devilish:
Really cool work! I can see that the head is you. ;) And I did not know that about human heads. :o

Me too! Yes, the originals are way more cruel than the child versions, although the child versions are pretty brutal already!
The head isn't me O.o It's from the stock photo I used :P

I read that in a book about surreal and scary stuff about the human body. Damn interesting stuff!
