Who knew Barbie could look so nightmarish! Artist Annette Thas has created this giant Barbie wave installation for Sculpture by the Sea in Perth. The event takes place on Cotteslow Beach between 70 local, interstate and international artists. Thas says of her installation: ‘The Barbies are used to convey messages.

That’s why I decided to use blonde Barbie dolls. The sculpture is about genetic modification and the tyranny of the ideal image of beauty’.

I’ll never look at a Barbie doll the same way again.
