The work explores the way that girls are constrained from birth to conform to an appearance and code of behaviour, to present a perfect face, and maintain the expectations of others. The use of porcelain or stoneware with layered disrupted surfaces, describe the vulnerability beneath.
Individual figures show the young child dressed for display, as a plaything for adults, an entertainment and ornament. Looks and behaviour are already prescribed.
