Till We Have Faces

Click on this picture to make it larger and then see if you can find the 11 human faces. I love stuff like this!

It reminds me of my favorite novel/fiction in the world: Till We Have Faces, by C.S. Lewis, a re-telling of the Greek myth about Cupid and Psyche, with a twist. "Nowhere in Lewis' works is the soul explored better...."

Lewis himself proclaimed this to be his best work, in spite of the fact that he wrote it from a woman's point of view. Of it he says, "I was with book, as a woman is with child." It was a book incubating in him most of his life. Themes of family, love, hate, jealousy, possessiveness, selfishness, sacrifice, suffering--what more could you ask for!

It's one of those books I try to read once every five years, and it's that time again, I see!
