Who will you think of when hearing the story of the “Sleeping Beauty” ? Is it Princess Aurora? Prince Philip? Or the evil fairy Maleficent?
Maleficent (黑魔后) is known for her curse to Princess Aurora and she is associated with darkness and power. There has not been a back story to give information for why and how Maleficent turned to be evil until Walt Disney Pictures casted a movie ‘Maleficent’ in 2014 portraying this figure. Maleficent was once a powerful and living fairy in protecting a magical forest realm. She turned to be an antagonist when she was betrayed. And there the story of the Sleeping Beauty began.
In this study group, Carol will share the story of Maleficent and explore the meanings of this figurine. Some clinical materials will be presented to facilitate the discussion.
