This is the image captured off Yahoo’s front page. Having just returned from Paris, it just struck me that never once did I see anyone look like that stereotypical sketch. Without getting into complex discussion, it’s interesting to note however, how easy it is to caricature the stereotypical details of a culture in a cartoon form that communicates the nationality at a glance. If we had any doubts, the Eiffel Tower is in the background 🙂 as an added symbol.
I know there’s more to this, but I don’t know what or don’t have the language or concepts to articulate it. What say you?
