Although this was not OUR crown, the unique absurdity of the size of the crowns that young pageant contestants compete for and then, if a winner, eventually wear is startling. This image, an actual pageant crown, sparkles beyond the pale and represents the misplaced hopes and desires that get wrapped up in the hype of being perfect enough to win the contest. Its an excellent metaphor for all that is wrong with our cultural expectations of young girls.
