Green Eyes

Here is my last creation - Green eyes is a portrait - limited to the eyes - inspired by a photograph of a Tuareg Lady seen in a French Magazine of years ago. 

There is lots of mystic about Tuaregs. At the beginning of the 20th century 2 authors came up with very similar novels "SHE" by Ridder Hagard - and "L'Atlantide"  by Pierre Benoit. involving mysterious and powerful African princesses closely related to the Tuareg people. Carl Jung considered that these heroins were incarnation of the feminine archetype he described as the Anima.

There has also been lots of controversy about the possibility that Tuareg people could have light colored eyes. I am not sure about that, but I liked that picture, so, here we are, another portrait.   Green eyes measures 13 x 26 inches, it is made out of travertine, black granite, ceramics, porcelains and various irridized glasses and mirrors. I hope you enjoy it.
