When Dumas’ daughter Helena drew on her mother’s portrait heads in ‘Underground’, she was about five years old. Now two years older, she does not take over in quite the same way but is more aware of the effects of what she is doing. She deliberately leaves the breasts open while she covers, or rather “dresses” other parts of the body and makes the figure thinner around her waist.
Boldly, she states her own norms of what beauty is.
