animus and anima by vesner animus and anima by vesner
The anima and animus, in Carl Jung's school of analytical psychology, are the two primary anthropomorphic archetypes of the unconscious mind as well as the abstract symbol sets that formulate the archetype of the Self. The anima and animus are described by Jung as elements of his theory of the collective unconscious, a domain of the unconscious that transcends the personal psyche. In the unconscious of the male, it finds expression as a feminine inner personality: anima; equivalently, in the unconscious of the female it is expressed as a masculine inner personality: animus.

aside from the incredible eye for detail you have, the theory and muse behind the work adds a significant edge that i had yet to really view in your other works.
Although nothing less of stunning i do find that the masculine side grabs hold of mine own eye and held it until i re-sized the picture and looked again. This is probably my eyes own fault for missing that part though.

This is just amazing! All of the detail...! I love the effect of the red string/bird against the rest of the image. There is something about this that definitely gives it a very... 'mind-scape' type feeling, though I can't quite put a finger on it. Awesome work! n.n

Impressive. This piece is really astonishing. The damn high grade of detail once again kicks butt. I really love the effect you have created with this light in the background and the trees in there. The big tree in the middle is done just great too. Also a really interesting image and meaning behind it. This picture is just brilliant once again and I like it very much:D
