THE EVIL QUEEN by Will Pigg
The Evil Queen, by Will Pigg, is a hand cut silhouette featuring his own version of the Evil Queen from Snow White.
Based off the original story, this piece depicts the Evil Queen looking into her Magic Mirror. She tried to trick Snow White three times. This is represented by the three inverted hearts at the top of the mirror. The Evil Queen was jealous and felt herself to be the most beautiful. This is negative self-love (hence the three hearts are inverted). On the left, The Evil Queen is holding the boars heart that was given to her by the Huntsman, in his attempt to trick the Evil Queen. She is holding it down to represent her disappointment. The Evil Queen in the mirror is giving herself the poison apple. Notice the apple is only half poison: In the original story she only made half the apple poison because by this time Snow did not trust her. So, the Evil Queen ate the good side of the apple to show Snow that the apple was fine, and gave Snow the poison half. In the distance is the Evil Queen's castle. On the bottom right, Snow is suspended in her "death" over the Evil Queen's cauldron. Finally, inside the cauldron there are 7 gems. These represent the 7 Dwarves
Will hand draws out the image and scans it in, (to keep it consistent), then redraws it so it is tighter and undeviating, for later use. Then he transfers the image onto a black sheet of heavy card-stock paper and gets to cutting. After it's cut out, he mounts/frames it (if they require framing) by sandwiching it in-between custom-made acrylic panels for a classy, unique, beautiful and contemporary frameless look.

*Acrylic frame cleaning suggestions: Microfiber cloths work best for fingerprints and dust. If it's really dirty, microfiber cloth with very little lukewarm water works too. Avoid using glass cleaners, alcohol, ammonia or all purpose cleaners. Do not use abrasive materials like paper towels or sponges.
