Daily Deviation

Given 2013-04-06
The suggester said: I stumbled upon this painting and it felt like it was following me around, but not only that. The different eyes seem to express different emotions, recognizable and intense, touching to the heart and mind. Kaleidoscope by *Ida-Astero ( Suggested by 0th0 and Featured by Astralseed )

Fitting that this kaleidoscope is adorned with eyes, for it draws mine and carries them along for the journey.

Fantastic painting in every way! I like how each eye seems to represent a different state of mind.
Abstract symbolism at it's best.. Illuminati? don't believe the hype!

This is really, really neat. Each eye almost looks like its meant to portray different memories or events throughout someones lifetime, a sort of collage of emotions. The dial thingy on the left suggests time, and the overall tone of the picture is really surreal. Amazing.

Favorite is the 'cracked' eye (or the one surrounded by cracks)

This image is absolutely awe-inspiring. Not only am I blown away because it's acrylic (the medium that I have the most struggles with), but some of these eyes seem to echo the way I've been feeling recently. The cobwebbed eye is my favorite, followed closely by the cracks, then the one that looks like torn fabric. Lots of symbolism here. I really appreciate this image, and it's one of the most worthy Daily Deviations I've seen in a long, long time. Thank yo for sharing this with us!

The edges of the triangular symbol with an eye in the center points to 3 different places. A gland in your brain which is in between your eye brows and the two eyes a human has. I think this symbol represents knowledge and the Egyptians valued knowledge a lot.

Life is like a kaleidoscope, one move changes everything. As well as one thing reflects into another to keep it together. The eyes I painted, symbolizes both the phases of life and the eyes as the mirror to the soul. It could be that they represent the different angels that follow me in my life. Everyone sees something of his own beliefs or feelings in this image. If it means that someone is touched by this image, I feel that I succeeded as an artist.

No, it's not the symbol of the Illuminati. To me it reflect different emotions and feelings about life

Wow, I just google'd the Illuminati to see what kind of symbol they use. I didn't know it was so similar. My inspiration for this image came from playing on my iPad after I took a picture of my eye.

haha :D yeah before i knew what illuminati is, i always drew eyes xD because it was fun for me, next to every character i drew his eye. and now i dont do this anymore xD :)

I don't follow that line of thoughts. To me they are just eyes and have nothing to do with the ideas of the Illuminati
