The face of peace

Münster, Germany

Pascale Feitner's "eyes" on the cathedral towers look far into the land and give the cathedral an idiosyncratic "face".
But that's only superficial. The artist wants to make it clear that the Old Testament saying
"An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth" has nothing to do with revenge, but with reparation and peace.
(Stone and copper)

There are many ways of viewing art and interpretation. Eye's can be viewed as lovely or unsettling.
I like your photo, Mieke.

Interesting concept. Not so sure I like it. It seems a bit creepy. A great photo though. V

Fascinating but somewhat weird.
