Green Head

This way of representing a human face reminds me of something, but I'm not sure what it is. 

Something about symmetry. 

Something about seeing, hearing, and feeling while moving through the world, experiencing it. 

For some reason, it reminds me of the intense alertness that I observed in wild animals throughout my research career, that I see outside my studio many times each day, and that I experience, moment by moment, when I am most fully alive.

What is going on here? 

How can four smooth surfaces, six smoothly curving edges between them, four sharp points where the edges come together, and some scrap metal and a piece of pool table slate accomplish all this? 

Am I dreaming?
