ok so this German town, Lohr am Main, claims that it's the birthplace of the woman who inspired the fairytale of Snow White. (This claim is totally false, the math doesn't add up, I'm working on a blog post series about it.) They have a whole tourist theme based on this.
In like 2013 or 2014, the mayor held a contest for a statue of Snow White to be put up in the town. The judges’ committee picked this as the winner.
It resembles a young child’s endearingly clumsy drawing, but with a kind of Medusa-esque horror. Tentacles protrude from its head. It has buggy, alien-like eyes and a quirky sideways smile like Junior Asparagus. Its stubby T-rex arms and contorted tiny hands are splayed out in a parody of a welcoming embrace. I think it has decolletage?
So since he won, the creator was supposed to make a permanent version. He came back with a big permanent metal version and a 100k euro bill for the town. The townspeople (who apparently did not get any say in the contest) were livid. (Comment from @procrastinatorkimberlygrey: “I FUCKING BET”)
Behold it looming menacingly over the crowd. I like the one woman to the left of the statue who looks like she’s probably crying laughing.
A student put up graffiti of it. Now it’s a meme. They call it “Horror White.” There are T-shirts.
I love everything about this. I’m pretty sure the statue has been vandalized at least once.
My first Tumblr post will show how obsessed I am with these two and that's ok
