This is a bark art photo with many images
to project what you see. Using my macro lens,
I perceived the profile of a man’s head
with a view inside his mind.
The icons are surreal and can be interpreted
from the perspective of the viewer, thus the
title Psyche. Please view this in the large
format to perceive the myriad of images
that help to understand the unconscious
material of the subject. I also see a dog facing
the opposite way adding to the mystery and intrigue of this piece. It appears that he is
touching a lady who is leaning over wearing
a beautiful shimmering green skirt to complement
the dog’s lovely brown skirt of the same
material. We see pictures in our dreams that are symbolic messages that contain valuable information about many things we may not be aware of.
Bringing the light to the dark and interpreting
primary process imagery leads us to a deeper
understanding of ourselves and others.
This image presents an x-ray of many icons including what I perceive as a fish swimming his head. What do you perceive? Please view in the large format.

    really fascinating , I see the dog and the lady but not the man so much, and I see images of things in mountains, clouds do you?…. or am I insane and don’t know it? love this

    Yes you are insane, but just for a few moments when you let go
    of conscious thought and free associate without censorship. It is a
    good insane, not pathological, but creative insanity. :) The profile of a
    man’s head is touching the dog looking in the other direction. I see
    mountains and clouds and many other icons and I enjoy my active
    imagination and share your insanity!
