When home is Alice's prison

A woman strikes a pose in front of an art installation entitled Alice, by Spanish artist Cristina Lucas, in the Andalusian Centre of Contemporary Art in Seville, Spain.

According to the museum's website, the artist "aims to bring the book's (Alice In Wonderland) unsettling fantasy into the real world and use it as a metaphor for the physical and mental imprisonment of women as a form of oppression, trapped within the confines of their homes".
