CHILDREN are enjoying a 'magical wonderland' exhibition in East London of contemporary artwork portraying fairytales, myths and legends from around the world.
The display is being staged at Bethnal Green's Museum of Childhood, which includes work inspired by well-known European tales such as Hansel and Gretel by the Brothers Grimm, and The Ugly Duckling by Hans Christian Andersen.
The varied cultural and geographical backgrounds of the 50 exhibiting artists is shown in the 2D and 3D works which take youngsters to places of 'good' and 'evil', quests and heroes, love and friendship.
