If I had only seen this piece of art online, or through a picture, I would not have understood the texture of it as well as I did when I saw it in person. Even in the picture I took with it, it looks much more plain and smooth than it really is. What I really appreciated about this piece and the medium used to create it was that it is something I did not expect to see. It is pieces of cloth on a canvas, similar to paper mache. I found it striking that something that looks so plain from far away is actually extremely intricate and textured. I was able to relate this to people, from far away we look fine, our lives often seem normal to other people. It is only when we go up close we realize that people aren't always what we think of them.
