“She epitomizes that moment in one’s life wherein they realize that holding onto things will only create tension and frustration.”
Sideshow presents the Red Fine Art Print by award-winning illustrator Máté Jakó, presenting his unique and ethereal interpretation of the Little Red Riding Hood fairytale.
This breathtaking reimagining of a classic story transforms the heroine into a heralded figure, wreathed in light and delicate ribbons as she sheds her cold armor in the face of danger. As a pack of snarling werewolves tears at her with their teeth and claws, she feels no fear- instead, she is liberated and empowered, transcending the constraints of chaos to meet the world with clarity and confidence.
“In a world filled with chaos and confusion, there is a constant that only grows more and more valuable the darker it gets – the expression of ourselves through art. No matter how dark our history, art has continued to serve as a beacon, guiding us through our deepest nights and leading us toward our light.
A concept for a similar piece was brewing in my mind for quite some time, and when the Sideshow Team asked me to create my version of the Little Red Riding Hood story, it finally came to fruition.
“Red” is about the strength we all possess, demonstrated by our heroine bravely facing the world around her head on. Though surrounded on all sides by a ravenous horde of werewolves, she rises above the chaos, dignified and victorious without judgement. She epitomizes that moment in one’s life wherein they realize that holding onto things will only create tension and frustration. When one lets go, energy can finally circulate through the body again. It’s that moment when we stop wanting. She looks upon the surrounding strife, but at this point she sees beyond it. Her robes break up and cleanse the darkness. She leaves her armor and weapons behind, the now useless pieces falling amongst the mass of monsters she has transcended. She emerges victorious, her heart calm and full of forgiveness. Her victory is the achievement of the soul.
Let her guide you."
