Disrobing Innocence - Call for entries

What happens when our innocent childhood fantasies --fairies, princesses, cowboys and superheroes-- collide with the seven deadly sins of humanity? Salon Ciel seeks works containing the symbols of childhood clashing with the obvious or cryptographic adult themes of wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust envy or gluttony. Salon Ciel favors representations which are penetrating, witty, and mischievous without being facile or exploitative.
