Ballerina and

Tin Soldier


Inspired by Hans Christian Anderson's tale 'Steadfast Tin Soldier', the collection tells a story of love between a paper ballerina and a one-legged tin soldier. The fairytale was influenced by a heartbreak that Anderson endured when he fell in love with a woman who chose another man. Only when he was writing his story, Anderson changed the ending, and his Ballerina chose the Soldier because sometimes we all need hope and a sign that true love conquers all.
