Mother Of (Disney) Dragons

An unusual mash-up - one that's good!

I'm usually against mash-ups, but only because they tend to be stupid  and have no meaning. I love the ones that feel smart and interesting, like Mona Calentine's Mother of Dragons. The painting reimagines Game of Thrones' Daenerys Targaryen as a Disney princess, surrounded by famous Disney dragons (you may quickly recognize two of them; the third is Figment, mascot of Epcot's IMagination! pavilion). It deftly juxtaposes differing versions of 'strong' women, and contrasts different cultural interpretations of dragons. Also, it looks great!
