This is the first piece of art I have seen that truly depicts how conscientious people see themselves. Lots of good people see themselves that way. One does not have to be evil to see the guilt they feel. This seems to depict that.

It's also how narcissists never look at themselves

But she's holding her face out in what looks like an attempt to do so, it's just that she's not equipped to?

I thought she was looking at a handheld mirror!

Totally can see that, as well as the previous comments' take. It's cool how art can be speak to people in different ways.

Also I think that people sometimes have issues with seeing themselves in a much worse light than they are. Which can actually cause them to see others in a worse light. And cause more issues with their happiness and relationships.

To me this more feels like that. The healthy alternative would be they look in a mirror and see themselves more authentically. Maybe without makeup as opposed to a medusa like beast.

We sometimes see ourselves as snakes or demons when we're really just human. If we saw ourselves and others as just human, rather than snakes or evil, then I think that's the more ideal place to be at where we can really treat ourselves and others with more kindness.

This is my take and the girl in the painting resembles my whore of an ex.

As an autistic person who was diagnosed as an adult and spent my entire childhood learning to force my autism inside a mask, this is how i see myself. Sometimes, the mask slips and i show people who i really am. And that usually makes them leave. Which is understandable because being bitten by 20 snakes at the same time probably isn't pleasant for them either.

Mental illness.

Perfectly described in a picture.

More like “the human condition” described in a picture.


Viltris t1_iwwofdy wrote

Is it weird that I actually think she's kinda cute?


sprintbooks t1_iwytf13 wrote

For me, that’s the point. Outwardly, she is pretty, but within she is viperous (or some kind of bad person). She wears her face like a mask so no one knows what she’s really like.

I don't know what it is exactly about this painting, but it really affects me. I keep looking at it, and it makes me feel sort of sad and uncomfortable. It's really a great piece

Are all women full of snakes or just this one?

Edit: I meant literal snakes. Like a NoSleep story.

The face of a beautiful woman is one of the most devastating clandestine weapons in history.

My god, if we can just make imitations of her face, it will revolutionize the art of war.
