Mummified Barbies

E.V. Day’s "Mummified Barbies" is an ongoing project, exploring western cultural ideas surrounding beauty and the often obsessive quest in contemporary society to preserve female beauty. Ironically, as Day mummifies or preserves the Barbies, their stereotypical beauty is concealed, and their iconic figure is transformed into something more playfully subversive.
