When I saw this art piece, it spoke to me instantly. With my pain issues, I have become more aware of my muscles and nerves than I ever have before, more than the average person, I believe. When I look in the mirror, I don't just see my external, but I think of my neck and shoulder pain or how it is healing--this painting depicts my self-consciousness so perfectly. When we look at a person, what we see on the outside is just the surface--think of all the layers beneath the surface. There is so much more than the eye can see.
