Not so hard to imagine, i've never met a shrink even marginally more insightful than the average person of acceptable intelligence.

I love how it looks like an old piece if contemporary artists came in and suffocated the women with jagged edges and a bit of color. This is fabulous. Each section is drawn beautifully (especially the folds in her clothing) and has a good amount of value.

I love it.

Beautiful piece, great use of the medium, and nice take on the Old Masters style. I assume "Sophia" is a reference to Wisdom in the Greek, gnostic, and Christian traditions. The pyramid/triangle kinda bolsters this reading, although the hands and string are a bit of a mystery to me. I do like the mysterious quality in this piece, however. Nice work.

Thank you! Yes, your assumption is correct :) Shortly, the string represents wisdom that she weaves and the hands are people who crave it, while the triangle stands for the 'fixed' aspect of reason (reflected by math, sciences etc.).

Ah, OK. That clarifies the meaning quite a bit. :)
