The Woman of Many Faces
The other day I went to an art gallery and saw a piece of art that struck me and caused me to think. This piece was a statue of a woman amidst a lush green garden. Her clothelessness exposed her deep red skin and the simple shape of her body. In her right hand, she held up a temporary face in place and in the other hand was a chain with three other faces dangling from it. As I studied her, I saw myself in this seemingling simple women. More questions overwhelmed my thoughts. I am eager to forget my questions and my encounter with this telling woman.
