The Mind's Eye

Interpreting a work of art is a lesson in subjectivity. Take this recent masterpiece by Madeline. Each of us had our own idea what it was representing. Our intepretations are as follows:

Mommy: A butterfly

Daddy, the radiologist resident who clearly interprets other kinds of images all day and needs to get out more: A thyroid

Madeline, its creator: Two big eyes.

What do you see?
