Description

The boy wields a slingshot, but instead of a pebble, he uses his own eye as a projectile. Though the boy may ostensibly reference the story of David and Goliath and Hammurabi’s code of reciprocity, “an eye for an eye”, he is also a representation of my creative struggles, as the target of my ambitions requires an element of self-sacrifice and mutilation.
