Beauty and the Beast Doll

I have always thought of the Beauty and the Beast myth as a gateway to Persephone's story. Or, perhaps, the other way around.  In either case, I think both stories are beautiful.  I just discovered this doll and was immediately enchanted.  Though she is a representation of Beauty from the fairy tale, she could easily be seen as Persephone as well as she finds herself in the Underworld for the first time, afraid and confused.
