This image was directly lifted from the great spanish painter Diego Velasquez's masterpiece Las Meninas. However, instead of his treatment of political and familial relations, this image, reduced from a large congregation to a single figure, endorses internal relations and the search for meaning within. These largely invisible navigations and constructs that define us create what we call our 'self', what W. B. Yeats calls "a heavenly mansion, raging in the dark". It's there that we take possession of ourselves and ascend to a condition of understanding, if only sporadically, and always to begin again.
