Is this piece for sale?

 Thank you for your interest!! Thanks for everything!
This piece is actually under re-construction into a sculptural object right now, so the original image no longer exists as what you see here except for in print form (I have added a higher-resolution file to enable larger-size prints from the deviantART printshop).
Again, thank you very much! Black Rose

Am I crazy, or is there a compass stuck on one of the playing cards? :P

Either way, I really like this piece; so much to look at in full view here. Upon first glance, it doesn't seem all that impressive, but then zoom in and take a good look at it, and it amazes you with shiny and colorful detail. I'm really impressed with how you seemed to mix the macabre (death's heads on red paper) and the sweet (the intricate tree) together without making it look randomly-placed. There was obviously quite a bit of thought put into this. The book you mentioned in another comment, the one from which this piece gets its title, must indeed be interesting. I assume that the 'undiscovered self' Jung writes of has many layers - some thicker than others, some more obvious, some quite latent - just like your collage.

Congrats on the DD! I'm happy to see a collage up here, as I haven't seen any that I remember very well, that stick out in my mind. I'm glad I took the time to view this; I enjoy pieces that make me think. :)

:peace:

Thank you so much for the insightful comment! :thanks:
:nod: Close guess - it's a watch, not a compass.
I think that perhaps the nearest connections in-between the "macabre" (skulls) and the "sweet" (intricate tree) might be the "neutral" anatomical diagrams of the human brain and nervous system...
Yes- I lost count of how many times I read Carl Jung's Undiscovered Self - it is one of my favorite books of all time.
Thank you so very much for the congrats and the compliments!! :heart:

You're very welcome! :)
Ah, a watch. Still, nice touch; the art is abstract so I guess it would be fitting to incorporate the abstract concept of time.
I think that's a valid idea; the diagrams are not particularly macabre or sweet, just a bit of both and also perhaps neither.
I'm glad you enjoy such reading; there are a lot of people who wouldn't read a book like that,
Again, you are most welcome. Keep up the good work! :)

I think it wouldn't hurt to add that book to some high-school or college class reading curriculum. I find every so often that I'm using something I learned from it in my daily life. It's an important book, for one's life and his/her perspective in understanding self, others, and beyond. :blackrose:
