Most photos of baby costumes are adorable, funny and sweet. These? I’ll go with weird and controversial.

Danish-Norwegian artist Nina Maria Kleivan dressed her baby in various costumes of evil dictators. Her point? That all evil dictators began as little babies, and its up to parents (and society) to set them on the right path.

“We all begin life the same. We all have every opportunity ahead of us. To do good, or inexplicable evil. You need to be conscious that your actions have consequences that impact on your fellow human beings.”

It’s a very interesting way to explore the nature of good vs. evil, I’ll give her that. But I’m a little stuck on the fact that a mother decided to dress her baby up as horrible murderers. Hmm.. what do you all think?
