Diana, Princess Of Wales, is remembered most for her extensive charity work, highly publicized divorce from Prince Charles, and untimely death at the age of 36. A Chesterfield, England memorial, constructed entirely from flowers and malice, presents a different view of the late Diana—one whose image endures not as royal inspiration, but pure nightmare.
The Chesterfield Diana’s neon-smeared grin, hooded eyes, and Thatcherite frizz-fro have attracted plenty of attention. Naturally, none of it is exactly positive.
Its makers may not be seeing the sort of response they hoped for, but, in creating a new favorite in horrendous British memorials, the people of Chesterfield may have inadvertently found a way to keep Diana alive for the next generation: haunting their goddamned dreams.
