eye illustration collection

Another eye. On a dirty mangled piece of card to contrast with the seductive quality of the eye. Playing on the 17th Century idea of 'vanitas' - the decay of youth and beauty. (how dreadfully depressing!)
This is an actual card which I made and aged and keep in my collection of spotty and stained papers and cards. Locked in a huge vault along with the family diamonds that were looted in old colonial days. Oh! Cant say that.....its not politically correct. Oh bother!
