MALEFICENT THE EVIL FAIRY

DID YOU KNOW THAT?

Sleeping Beauty” (French: La Belle au bois dormant “The Beauty Sleeping in the Wood”) by Charles Perrault, or “Little Briar Rose” (German: Dornröschen) by the Brothers Grimm, is a classic fairy tale which involves a beautiful princess, a sleeping enchantment, and a handsome prince.

Once upon a time, in a faraway land, a beautiful new-born princess was cursed by an evil fairy. The curse proclaimed that on the princess’ 16th birthday she would PRICK her finger and die.

To lessen the damage, one of the good fairies managed to change the curse so that the princess, instead of dying, would sleep for one hundred years only to be awakened by the kiss of a handsome prince.

The scene in which Sleeping Beauty PRICKS her finger.
