Fairy Tale Friday- Beautiful

This week’s fairy tale is also known as Lovely. It centres around a young sculptor who totally liked a widow’s daughter named Kala. She really is quite beautiful. Luckily, he gets to marry her but he finds out that she’s not that exciting. He travels with Kala and her mother. Sadly, Kala dies. The sculptor marries again, but this time he marries someone ugly but smart and sensible. She’s Kala’s friend, Sophie. Sophie tells him that he will reunite with Kala in heaven and he’ll still find her beautiful.

I felt like this was quite a harsh little tale! I’m pretty sure that beautiful people aren’t all dull and ugly people aren’t all smart and savvy. It’s quite judgemental but there you go…
